Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program (MRVP) Tenant Based Voucher
The tenant-based voucher, which is known as Mobile, remains with the participant and is valid for any housing unit that meets the standards of the state sanitary code within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Under MRVP, a fixed amount of rental assistance is paid, based on the participating family’s income, household size and geography. The participant pays the difference between the value of the voucher and the actual rent charged by the landlord. The tenant cannot pay more than 40% of their income for rent.
Community Teamwork is not currently able to accept applications from the public for MRVP as the waitlist is currently closed.
Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program (MRVP) Project Based Voucher
Project-based vouchers are assigned to a specific housing unit or development. The owner rents these units to a program eligible tenant. MRVP project-based vouchers generally cannot be transferred; and project-based tenants who move forfeit the subsidy.
