The purpose of this training is to teach rent calculation for both the public housing and housing choice voucher programs. The seminar has been carefully structured for combination areas to be trained together. This is possible because both programs use essentially the same rules leading up to the final rent calculation.
Upon completion of HCV and Public Housing Rent Calculation, you will understand what is included in and excluded from annual income and how to identify and calculate income from assets, recognize and apply deductions to calculate adjusted income, and calculate total tenant payment (TTP). For those who work in the HCV program, you will also calculate the family share and housing assistance payment (HAP). For those working in the public housing program, you will calculate tenant rent and understand flat rents.
Read and interpret form HUD-50058 and its accompanying instructions
Identify and calculate annual income using 24 CFR part 5, which is universal to all HUD programs
Recognize the qualifiers for the earned income disallowance (EID), identify the exclusion periods, and calculate the disallowance
Identify assets and calculate income from assets based on 24 CFR part 5
Calculate adjusted income by correctly applying the HUD-defined allowances and expenses that are universal to both programs
Recognize the requirements for verification of income, allowances, and expenses which are identical for both programs
Calculate the HAP and family share for an HCV family using the payment standard, utility allowance, and gross rent, or
Calculate total tenant payment and tenant rent for a public housing family
Apply rent calculation skills to solve hands-on case studies
Case studies can be completed for HCV (using section 12 of the 50058 form), public housing (using section 10 of the 50058 form), or both

Join our Commissioner Fundamentals training to create a strong foundation for your work as a housing commissioner. The commissioner’s role is complex and can be daunting at times. We hope you will join us as we explore the roles and responsibilities of housing commissioners. Participants will also discover that the commissioner role is multi-faceted; commissioners are advocates, leaders, team builders and strategists. You’ll also learn the intricacies of board-staff relationships and boundaries, and review the principles and strategies of board governance, as well as some of the oversight functions of the board.
Commissioner Fundamentals is one of two NAHRO courses required to obtain your NAHRO Commissioners Certification. Becoming a NAHRO Certified Commissioner is a great way to show your commitment to becoming a knowledgeable, engaged and ethical leader in your organization. Ethics for Commissioners is the other course you’ll want to complete to apply for your certification.
