Assignment of Bedroom Sizes

The Phenix City Housing Authority will issue a voucher for a particular bedroom size - the bedroom size is a factor in determining the family's level of assistance. The following guidelines will determine each family's unit size without overcrowding or over-housing:

 

  • 0 Bedrooms: Minimum 1 and maximum 1 persons

  • 1 Bedroom: Minimum 1 and maximum 2 persons

  • 2 Bedrooms: Minimum 2 and maximum 4 persons

  • 3 Bedrooms: Minimum 3 and maximum 6 persons

  • 4 bedrooms: Minimum 4 and maximum 8 persons

 

These standards are based on the assumption that each bedroom will accommodate no more than two (2) persons. The family voucher size will be determined by the Agency’s set subsidy standards in accordance with the above guidelines and will determine the maximum rent subsidy for the family.
