Rent Calculation Process
Rents are based on 30% of gross income (after allowable deductions) or 10% of gross income (with no deductions), whichever is greater. The total family income is used to compute rents, except that of dependents under the age of 18 and full-time students. If you or a family member are receiving social services, we must charge the “Welfare Shelter Allowance” based on the number of family members on assistance.
