Income, Rent, Verification, and Earned Income Disallowance For Public Housing and Vouchers with Certification Exam

“This is a killer class!” says course instructor MaryAnn Russ. “But attendees leave with a new ability to correctly calculate income and rent.”

Having reviewed thousands of PHA files, Ms. Russ has learned that most errors in these calculations are a matter of bad data entry. Most authorities utilize software to handle the calculations, but if you enter the wrong annual income or wrong deductions, the software is not going to generate the correct rent or correct subsidy eligibility. This class is for participants to actually understand what the software is doing by learning it manually.

This is a technical class designed for HA staff members who actually take the applications and do recerts. The course workbook (which Ms. Russ says is unlike anything else out there) and the numerous handouts cover both PH and HCV income and rent determinations, so that all class participants are fully cross-trained.

The optional certification exam is a long case study. It is open-book – participants can use the workbook and all the materials utilized during the class. The intent is for people to know how to look up information and be able to figure out the correct way to handle a situation. Everyone receives back their corrected exam, with notes so they will know what errors they made. Those that pass will receive a certificate, suitable for framing.

Participants will receive an overview of:

  • Eligibility for admission (income, family composition, citizenship/eligible immigration status, social security numbers , screening)
  • Annual income/excluded income (for eligibility and rent)
  • Two annual income case studies
  • Two adjusted income case studies
  • Verification requirements and approaches
  • Rent (PH and PBV) and Rent and HAP (HCV)
  • Two case studies on rent (and HAP for HCV)
  • Earned Income Disallowance
  • Two case studies on EID
  • Review of all materials
