Please refer to example entitled:
What is the Household Income?
SUBPART E Reference Section § 24.402(b)(2)(ii)
What is the household income?
Ms. Smith is a single mother and is in college full-time. She works evenings and weekends. She receives regular child support payments from the child's father and occupies a family owned dwelling at no rent. She provides you the following detail:
Her income as shown on a W-2 is $15,000 and child support is $4,800. You have estimated the rent value of the dwelling she occupies at $900 per month.
Suggested answer is $19,800. Monthly gross is $1,650.
Discussion: Income from employment and child support are considered as household income. The non-cash subsidy she receives from her family in the form of a rental abatement is not income. That issue should be routinely handled as part of the rent assistance determination.
