Flat Rent Provision Changes

This is notification that, effective January 1, 2020, The LaFollette Housing Authority (LHA) is making adjustments to comply with HUD’s flat rent provision. Flat rents must be at least 80% of the current fiscal year’s Fair Market Rents (FMR) by bedroom size within a specific state/county, and they serve as a rent cap for tenants whose income based rent would be higher that the established flat rents. Since flat rent amounts are tied to each fiscal year’s published and approved Fair Market Rents, there is a possibility that they will increase each year. Remember, this is a rent cap for those whose income-based rent would be higher than the flat rate. Income-based rent will remain the choice for many of LHA’s families.
