June Stakeholder Virtual Listening Sessions on HUD’s FY25 PBCA Proposal 

Assistant Secretary for Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner Julia Gordon invites interested parties to join virtual stakeholder listening sessions to share their feedback on HUD’s proposed modifications to the Performance-Based Contract Administrator (PBCA) program.   


“The PBCA program is essential to the sustainability of the Section 8 Project Based Rental Assistance (PBRA) program and the more than 1.2 million low-income households it serves,” said Commissioner Gordon. “HUD is committed to hearing from and working with stakeholders to achieve a solution that ensures the long-term viability of this program.” 


HUD included its PBCA proposal in its fiscal year 2025 budget request. Specifically, this proposal would:   

  • Enable HUD to award cooperative agreements to eligible entities to serve as PBCAs through a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), rather than a Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) procurement; and  
  • Ensure that public housing authorities and their non-profit affiliates, as well as state and local housing finance agencies, are eligible to apply for a PBCA award.  


The virtual listening sessions will be held Wednesday, June 5, from 10 am to 12 pm ET and Thursday, June 6, from 2 pm to 4 pm ET. Register here to join either listening session. Participants will be able to indicate whether they would like an opportunity to speak during the listening session. Please indicate if you require reasonable accommodation.
