HADC implements SAFMRs
HADC implemented Small Area Fair Market Rents (SAFMRs) on April 1, 2018. SAFMRs are fair market rents (FMRs) established at the ZIP code-area level and replaced the 50th percentile FMRs previously required by HUD.
Reporting Income Changes
Effective November 1, 2017, all Housing Choice Voucher Program participants are required to report increases in household income within 10 days. HADC staff will calculate a rent adjustment to include the new income. Participants can also report decreases in their income, and will receive a rent adjustment.
