There are two rent calculation options for Public Housing, Income Based and Flat Rent. The amount of rent you pay will be determined by which option you choose, and by the amount of your income. Income based rent is based on 30% of your adjusted monthly income (other deductions may apply).
If you choose Income-Based rent and your income changes, you are required to report the change to the Housing Authority so that your rent can be re-calculated. If you choose-Flat Rent, you are still required to report any changes in your income; however, your rent amount will not change.
The Public Housing Manager will explain the rent calculation process in much greater detail once you are determined eligible so that you can choose the rent option that is best for you.
