Rent limited programs:
Under a rent limited program, the tenant must pay the entire rent. However, the total monthly rent plus estimated utility expenses
which a property may charge is limited to a maximum amount determined by agreements between the subsidy program
administrator and the property owner. Typically, the maximum amount is calculated to meet affordability requirements for
tenants at a specific income level and may be lower than the conventional rents for a similar unit in that community. The
landlord may charge any amount at or below that maximum level as approved by the program administrator.
