Calculations

  • To determine the TTP (Total Tenant Payment, or rent) the formula used is the highest of the following, rounded to the nearest dollar.

  1. 30% of the monthly adjusted income. (Monthly Adjusted Income is annual income, less deductions, allowed by the regulations- children, elderly, disabled)

  2. 10 percent of monthly income.

  3. Welfare rent, if applicable.

  4. A $25 minimum rent or higher amount (up to $50) is set by the Agency.

  • Re-certifications are required once a year from the move-in date. Interims are mandated when a tenant’s situation has changed (dependents, job, or pay change) that could impact rent.

  • Job status is checked from an online database using the tenant's SSN.
