“This amendment increases the Payment Standards, allowing DCHA to authorize and pay higher rent subsidies on behalf of participants of the Housing Choice Voucher Program. Currently, DCHA can only pay up to one hundred seventy five percent (175%) of the Fair Market Rent, and participants are responsible for any amount in excess, regardless of their income. This often restricts their rental options to less expensive neighborhoods and can put the most vulnerable D.C. residents at risk for eviction for non-payment of rent. As housing costs in D.C. continue to increase, this change will enable participants in the Housing Choice Voucher Program to more easily find housing that is both safe and affordable.”
“The Payment Standard is up to one hundred eight-seven percent (187%) of the Fair Market Rents for all size units in all areas of the District of Columbia. Any change to the Payment Standard shall be implemented by regulatory action of the Commission and shall apply to all vouchers issued after the date of the adoption of any regulation modifying the Payment Standard.”
Comments from the public are due February 11.
