Section 8 Overview of Rent Calculations

Description:

Everyday housing staff work on applicant and participant eligibility and rent calculations.  But did you know that much of the time we get it WRONG?  It’s true!  Housing staff often make errors in verification, documentation and calculation and these mistakes impact your bottom line and your agency’s image.

To improve your HCV rent calculations, join us for a refresher on determining accurate income, rent, payment standards, utility allowance and Housing Assistance (HAP) Payments. You’ll have time to practice both basic and more complex calculations and avoid common errors.
