Question One
True or False? HUD’s Office of Multifamily Housing Programs issued recent guidance to housing providers regarding counting income from the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) unemployment benefits, and the monthly child tax credit, provided by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to be included when calculating annual income.

Answer: False

Both sources of income, the $300 per week Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) unemployment benefits, and the monthly child tax credit, up to $300 per week are excluded from the annual income calculation.

  1. Section 2104: Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) in the 2021 Appropriations and the ARP provides eligible individuals who are collecting regular unemployment insurance an additional $300/week. Housing providers shall exclude this unemployment benefit from the annual income calculation on the basis that it is temporary income.
  2. Section 7527A: Advance Payment of Child Tax Credit in the ARP provides a monthly payment of up to $300/week from July 2021 through December 2021. Housing providers shall exclude the child tax credit on the basis that it is excludable income under 26 USC 6409.

Question Three
Charmel makes $500 bi-weekly at her job. Her roommate Jackson also makes $500 per pay period, and is paid semi-monthly. What is their total annual income from these jobs?

A. $6,000
B. $24,000
C. $25,000
D. $26,000

Answer: C. $25,000

$500 X 26 = $13,000 + $500 X 24 = $12,000

$13,000 + $12,000 = $25,000
