About Rental Assistance Corporation of Buffalo

The Rental Assistance Corporation of Buffalo (RACB), a not-for profit organization, was established in 1989. The City of Buffalo, as the Public Housing Authority (PHA), entered into a contract with RACB for the purpose of administering the Section 8 Existing Housing programs funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
RACB administers the Housing Voucher and Moderate Rehabilitation Programs. Through these Section 8 programs, RACB and the City seek to provide rental assistance on behalf of low-income families and elderly, or handicapped, or disabled individuals who could not otherwise afford decent, safe and sanitary housing.

RACB also participates in the Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) Program. FSS is the means for subsidized housing participants to set goals and work toward economic independence. In addition, RACB administers a very small Homeownership Program - where FSS participants are able to use their subsidy to purchase single family homes for themselves.
