HUD Fact Sheet

Thursday, December 09, 2010

HUD has released an updated version of the Project-Based Section 8 Fact Sheet for HUD assisted residents.  This Fact Sheet outlines how the resident’s rent is determined, what is considered income or assets, as well as the Owner/Agent and resident’s responsibilities and rights regarding income disclosure and verification.  As a reminder, this Fact Sheet must be provided to all applicants during the move-in verification process, as well as all current residents during annual recertification.  Documentation of distribution must be maintained in the resident file. 

What’s new with this version?

  • Minor formatting changes were made.
  • All asterisks (**) have been removed.  In the previous June 2007 version these were utilized to indicate a change, or new guidance. 
  • The following statement was removed from the section titled Federally Mandated Exclusions:  “Amounts of scholarships funded under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, including awards under the Federal work-study program or under the Bureau of Indian Affairs student assistance programs.”
