New federal rules regarding income requirements

This notice is for families who live in public housing or have Housing Choice Vouchers from Section 8 (HCV). There are new rules on the way income is counted because of a federal law, the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016 (HOTMA). Your local public housing agency (PHA) will start using these rules by January 1, 2025. Your PHA will tell you before the changes begin. This fact sheet is not official or required by HUD or your PHA.
