The Tenant Based Rental Assistance Program (TBRA) is funded through the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program. HUD allocates funds by formula to eligible State and local governments to strengthen public-private partnerships and to expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing, with primary attention to rental housing for very low-income and low-income families.
Applications for funding to operate a Tenant Based Rental Assistance program will be made available to local units of government, public housing authorities, and non-profit agencies, and will be considered on a competitive basis. Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) is a program designed to help income-eligible households with rent, security deposit, and/or utility deposits. Assistance in the form of a payment to the landlord helps reduce a household’s housing expense to 30 percent of their income.
