Project-Based Rental Assistance is program funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and administered locally by Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development.

The units are considered among the most affordable in Alexandria. The community is located near public transportation options, schools and local shopping.

HCD maintains a waiting list of pre-certified applicants in order to fill vacancies as they arise. Periodically, staff works to update and replenish the waitlist as vacancies are filled and information becomes dated.

All applications received during the enrollment period will be reviewed. Should the number of applications exceed the available spaces on the waitlist, 800 certified applicants will be randomly selected from among the total certified applicant pool. Following this process, all applicants will be informed whether they have been selected or not.
