New Columbia is a 556 unit affordable housing project owned by Home Forward. Of these, 94 one-bedroom units, 89 two-bedroom units, 96 three-bedroom units, 45 four-bedroom units, and 7 five-bedroom units receive Rental Assistance Demonstration or Project-Based Section 8 rent assistance (collectively, “RAD PBV units”). These programs require household income not to exceed 50% of the Area Median Income. Our subsidized waitlist is open only for 4-6 bedroom sizes.
PBV – Project-based vouchers are subsidies attached to a unit. The subsidy stays with the unit when you move. RAD (Rental Demonstration Unit) allow for a household in good standing to apply for a choice mobility voucher after living in the unit for more than a year.

The 1986 Tax Reform Act created the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) as an incentive to encourage the construction and rehabilitation of rental housing for lower-income households. The program offers credits on federal tax liabilities for 10 years. In exchange, the developments are required to maintain affordability for a period of time (see LIHTC rent limits), often decades after the tax credits have been used up. Currently, our Tax credit waitlist is closed due to the estimated wait time being over 3 years.
