Section 8 Recertification Reminder

August 1, 2022

The Moline Housing Authority (MHA) is required by federal regulations to review each voucher participant’s income and family size. This is done to assure that (1) the correct amount of rent is being paid based on actual income and (2) the unit is the right size for the family.

Preparing for your re-certification is important.

  • Be on time for your appointment.
  • Be sure you have all the documentation requested in your re-certification letter.
  • Be sure that all household members over the age of 18 attend the interview
  • Be on time for your appointment.

At the interview, the MHA representative will check to see that all information provided about income and family size is correct.

The annual re-certification may be completed by mail for participants with income sources MHA has found to be stable. These participants receive a re-certification packet in the mail approximately four months before the anniversary of the initial move-in date. If you receive one of these packets, read and follow all of the instructions on the cover letter and return the requested documentation promptly. MHA is in the business of housing people, therefore, help us help you to maintain your home by complying with the re-certification requirements as outlined above. Failure to do so, however, could result in your housing assistance being terminated.
