  Changes to Housing Choice Voucher Program Payment Standards


Dear Owner/Property Manager:

Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has passed a regulation changing how Housing Choice Vouchers Payment Standards are calculated. Previously, payment standards were based on the HUD established fair market rent estimates for the County.  Going forward rents will be based on zip codes, or like zip codes combined into groups. The purpose of this change is to allow families to have the opportunity to access higher-cost housing in areas of opportunity. This will provide the renters access to better communities and schools, and closer proximity to job centers.

As a result of this change, the Housing Authorities are presenting an informational session for landlords and property managers to explain and answer questions about the new Small Area Fair Market Rent (SAFMR) payment standards.

Register for one of the upcoming sessions by clicking on one of the web links below. Space is limited, so seats will be reserved on a first come first served basis. If you have questions, please contact any of the Housing Authorities that service your clients.
