Facts About Rent Calculation

  • The family will not pay less than the TTP (30% of the tenant’s monthly income) toward rent and utilities.
  • The PHA will not pay more subsidy than the payment standard minus the TTP (30% of the tenant’s monthly income).
  1. Subsidy = All that Section 8 can pay for any chosen by a tenant.
  2. TTP = Total Tenant Payment (30% of tenants monthly income).
  3. Total Subsidy = The Section 8 office will take the lower of the Payment Standard or the gross rent and subtract the Tenants 30% of their adjusted income.
  4. Gross Rent = Rent plus utility allowance.

In other words, the total subsidy is the lesser of the payment standard or the gross rent, minus TTP.

If the Family includes a disabled person, the family may request an exception subsidy for a reasonable accommodation.
