Equal Housing Opportunity

You are required to notify the Housing Agency in writing within 10 business days of any change to the income of any household member. Please report income changes with the Income Change Form. Failure to report changes on time to the Housing Agency is considered a program violation and your assistance may be terminated.

The following rules apply when reporting changes to your family income:

Increases in Family Income

If the income of any family member has increased, you must notify us in writing within 10 business days of the date of the increase. Please report income changes with the Income Change form.

We will verify the information you have provided, and make any necessary changes to your rental assistance.  If there is an increase in income and you do not notify us in writing within 10 business days of the date of the increase, you will be required to pay a retroactive rent increase, effective the first day of the month following the date of the income increase.  Additionally, if you do not notify the Housing Agency of any changes to your family income within the required time frame, your housing assistance may be terminated.

Decreases in Family Income

If the income of any family member has decreased, you must notify us in writing within 10 business days of the date of the decrease. Please report the change in income with the Income Change form.  We will verify the information you have provided, and make any necessary changes to your rental assistance.  If you do not notify us in writing within 10 business days of the date of the decrease, your rent will not be lowered retroactively.  Additionally, if you do not notify the Housing Agency of any changes to your family income within the required time frame, your housing assistance may be terminated.
