Question One:

True or False:  Cory Jones, a resident at Mountain View Apartments, lives with her dependent daughter Sarah.  Cory is a member of the armed forces and is deployed on active duty.  Her parents temporarily move in to help take care of Sarah.  When determining the anticipated annual income, the manager is not required to include the income of Cory’s parents that are currently residing in the unit while she is deployed.

Answer: True. HUD encourages owners and management agents to be as lenient as possible to support affected households that have eligible members in the armed forces.  Support of military households include, but is not limited to, allowing a guardian to move into the assisted unit on a temporary basis to provide care for any dependents that the military member leaves in the unit. Income of the guardian(s) temporarily living in the unit for this purpose is not counted in determining family income and the amount of rent the household pays is based on family income. HUD 4350.5-6 B/5-9 to 5-10

Question Two:

As outlined in Notice: H 2017-05 Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Reauthorization Act of 2013, HUD’s Final Rule - When should owner’s and agents provide the Notice of Occupancy Rights (form HUD-5380) and Certification of Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, or Stalking, and Alternate Documentation (form HUD-5382):

  1. To applicants with denial of assistance
  2. At move-in
  3. With notice of eviction or termination of assistance
  4. All of the above

Answer: D. All of the above

Question Three:

True or False:  Applicants are prioritized on the waitlist based on their income level, then date of application. Priority is NOT based on household income within an RD income level. Households of differing income levels are prioritized in the following order:

  • The low income limit – 50 % of AMI
  • The very-low income limit – 80 % of AMI
  • The moderate income limit – add $5,500 to the low-income limit

Answer: False. The three different income limits used to establish eligibility for the Rural Development program are very low income limit (50% AMI), low income limit (80% AMI), and moderate income limit (80% AMI + $5500).  Note:  Unless the property has received a waiver from the Agency to rent to over-income households, above moderate income household are NOT eligible.
