PROCESSING REQUESTS FOR MINIMUM RENT EXEMPTIONS; CONTROLLING ACCESS TO KEYS
In this month’s feature, we discussed how HUD occupancy regulations require all households living at Section 8 sites to pay a monthly rent of at least $25. But households that can’t afford to pay the $25-per-month minimum rent can ask you for an exemption from this requirement. We explained who qualifies for an exemption from paying minimum rent, and what steps to take to process an exemption request properly.
