Changes in Income and Household Composition

A family may request an interim or redetermination at any time, based on any change in the family’s income and/or household composition.

When a change is requested, a redetermination packet must be completed and returned to the Section 8 office with all the required documentation for the change.

A family is required to report in writing all changes in the family’s income, or the household composition, within ten (10) days of the date of change.  Failure to report changes may result in termination from the program.

The landlord and the client will receive a letter outlining the change, a 30-day notice is normally given, that shows the family’s new rental portion and HACSL’s Housing Assistance Payment (HAP).
