The following are the rules regarding assisted rents under the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program:
- HUD requires HACLB to pay rental rates that are appropriate for the neighborhood.
- The tenant's rent is based on the household paying 30% of household income toward rent and HACLB paying the remainder.
- Tenants may pay up to 40% of the family's monthly income for rent at the time the lease is executed.
- Rent approval is always subject to the Rent Reasonableness process.
