Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) – Reporting Changes In Income & Family Composition

April 1, 2022

We are reminding our HCV families that they are required to report changes in their income or family composition to MHA in writing within 10 days of the change. The HCV Department has a Request for Interim Adjustment form (MHA Form 409) that must be completed, signed, and turned into our office whenever there is an income increase, income decrease, or change in family size. Although not all changes in income will result in a rent increase, the income change must still be reported within 10 days. Failure to follow these requirements could result in penalties, including but not limited to, loss of benefits, termination from the HCV program, and repayment of funds owed. If in doubt, do not hesitate to call the HCV office for guidance. Help us help you.
