Eligibility for the project-based program is similar to the voucher programs, but waiting list and application policies will vary depending on the landlord.

Most affordable housing programs determine eligibility based on the percent of AMI a given household's income is. Among the programs that determine eligibility based on the AMI are Section 8, HOME, LIHTC, Section 515, 202 and 811.
