Payment Standards & Utility Allowances

Below are the 01/01/2022 Payment Standards and Utility Allowance Tables for your reference.  As you look at these documents, please be advised:

The payment standard is the maximum amount paid for each unit type.  The whole payment standard amount is only offered when landlords pay ALL utilities.  If you will not be paying all utilities, please use the Utility Allowance Table (effective 01-01-2022) below to subtract the appropriate tenant responsible utilities from the payment standard; this will provide you with the most affordable contract rent amount for your available unit.
