The Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program (MRVP) provides a permanent improvement in the lives of low-income families and individuals by offering both tenant- and project-based rental subsidies.
The tenant-based voucher, which is known as Mobile, is assigned to the Participant and is valid for any housing unit that meets the standards of the state sanitary code. Project Based vouchers are assigned to a specific housing unit or development.
Project-based vouchers are assigned to a specific housing unit or development. MRVP project-based vouchers generally cannot be transferred; they are tied to a specific apartment or development.
Metro Housing|Boston is not able to accept applications from the public for MRVP as the waitlist is currently closed. At times, when specialized vouchers become available for this program, the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) determines how the specialized vouchers are utilized.
