RICHMOND, VIRGINIA (January 10, 2024) — On  Monday, January 22, 2024, Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority (RRHA) will open five (5) project-based voucher (PBV) waitlists of various bedroom sizes. A project-based voucher (PBV) is a housing choice voucher where the subsidy stays with the unit, not the individual voucher holder. The pre-application period for the PBV waitlists will open Monday, January 22, 2024, at 8:30 a.m. and close on Tuesday, January 23, 2024 at 5:00 p.m.  

The five (5) PBV waitlists that will open Monday, January 22nd total 38 units and are in the following communities:

  • Lambert Landing I – Chesterfield, VA: Two (2) and Three (3) bedroom units.
  • Lambert Landing II –  Chesterfield, VA: Two (2) and Three (3) bedroom units.
  • Brady Square III – Richmond, VA: One (1) , Two (2) and Three (3) bedroom units
  • Brookland Park Apartments – Richmond VA: One (1) , Two (2) and Three (3) bedroom units

“While RRHA recognizes  the total number of units  may not be sufficient, it will be advantageous for  individuals to move from the waitlist and into affordable housing. Our goal continues to focus  on minimizing  the impact of the current affordable housing crisis  by reopening the waitlists and reducing  the wait time to less than six months,” explains RRHA Chief Executive Officer, Steven Nesmith.
