Administrative Plan 

Effective July 1, 2013, the following changes were made to our Administrative Plan:
  • If you have a decrease in tenant income all changes must be reported by the 15th of the month, with verification, to take effect the following month. If not received until the 16th or after, the change will take place the second month. Examples:
    • If a decrease change is received on July 8, the change in tenant payment will be for August 1
    • If the change is not received until July 16, the change in tenant payment will be effective September 1
  • Vouchers are being made more restrictive (bedroom sizes are being downsized). Changes will be made when porting, re-certifying, or when moving to another unit.
