HACM Policy

  • The HACM does not determine who shares bedroom/sleeping room; one bedroom will be assigned to the head of household and spouse or partner, and one bedroom will be assigned for each additional two persons.

Who is Eligible?

Eligibility for a rental voucher is determined by HACM based on the total annual gross income and family size and is limited to U.S. citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status. In general, the family’s income may not exceed 50% of the median income for the county or metropolitan area in which the family chooses to live. Median income levels are published by HUD and vary by location. HACM is serving your community and can provide you with the income limits for your area and family size.

During the application process, HACM will collect information on family income, assets, and family composition. HACM will verify this information with other local agencies, your employer and bank, and will use the information to determine program eligibility and the amount of the rental assistance payment.

If HACM determines that your family is eligible, the HA will put your name on a waiting list, unless it is able to assist you immediately. Once your name is reached on the waiting list, HACM will contact you and issue to you a rental voucher.
