This two-part series discusses compliance-related provisions that affect site management of HOME rental properties.

Leasing requirements and income determinations are also covered. Finally, unique HOME rules relating to increases in income and calculating rent based on adjusted income round out the discussion. As appropriate to the attendees, we will also briefly discuss how HOME interacts with the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Program.

Question 1:

When determining the annual income of a household currently residing at Living Oak Apartments, the manager includes $50.00 in groceries delivered weekly from Grandma Josephine, and an additional $200 that is deposited monthly into their bank account. The correct annual income is:

  1. $3000.00
  2. $2400.00
  3. $5000.00
  4. $600.00

Answer: $2400.00. The weekly amount of groceries is exempt and as stated in Exhibit 5-1 of the 4350.3 HUD Handbook. The cash deposit into the bank account is a verifiable cash contribution and must be included as income to the household.

Question 2:

True or False.  When verifying assets, the household lists a checking account and a savings account. The savings account verification shows a current balance of $100.00 and an available balance of $95.00, and the checking account verification shows a six-month average balance of $300.00. The total assets for this household equal $395.00.

Answer: False. The current balance of the savings account is $100.00; the $5.00 is a minimum for the account to remain open, and is not a penalty to withdraw funds. Total assets equal $400.00

Question 3:

True or False.  When a household is receiving SS and SSI payments on a Direct Express Debit Card, the card is treated as a savings account with the current balance on the card being verified and included with the total assets of the household.

Answer: True.  The balance on the card is considered an asset and verification is consistent with savings account verifications. HUD RHIIP Listserv Posting #296

Question 4:

The Applicable Credit Percentage is part of the tax credit formula to determine the annual tax credits for a building.  What are the two categories of credit percentages?

  1. 20%, 50%
  2. 4%, 9%
  3. 40%, 60%
  4. None of the above

Answer:  B.
