2012 Fair Market Rents

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development has published the 2012 Fair Market Rents.  These are used by Public Housing Agencies (PHA) to establish the Payments Standards Schedules used for rent portion calculations in the Housing Choice Voucher Program.  OCHA's Payment Standards Schedule is available on the documents and forms page. The new Payment Standard(s) will take effect either upon a participants move to a new unit, rent change by owner, or during an annual reexamination of income and family composition.
