Section 8 Project-Based Contract Administration Program


As the Section 8 Project-Based HUD-designated Contract Administrator for New York State, HCR is directly responsible to HUD for all program functions and reporting requirements, provides general program oversight and input on policy development, and performs a quality assurance function for all assigned tasks.

Day-to-day functions involved in this program initiative include conducting management and occupancy reviews, adjusting contract rents, paying monthly Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) vouchers to project owners, processing HAP Contract renewals, terminations and/or opt-outs and responding to health and safety issues.

These functions are carried out by and through a contract with a Private Sector Partner (PSP). Pursuant to a competitive procurement process, CGI was selected as the PSP effective December 1, 2005 and then again in 2010.

We invite you to visit the PBCA website of New York at This website will serve as an informational resource for owners, agents and residents of the HCR/HTFC Section 8 Project-Based portfolio.
