NEW! NOTICE TO ALL GLENDALE PUBLIC HOUSING RESIDENTS
January 29, 2016
REVISED FLAT RENT SCHEDULE

Each year during the annual reexamination process, Public Housing residents have a choice of having their monthly rent calculated on their household income, or they can choose to pay a flat rent. Unlike income-based rents, flat rents do not fluctuate with changes in family income. Glendale Housing must establish public housing flat rents at no less than 80% of the current Fair Market Rent (FMR), as issued by HUD. HUD also dictates that the annual increase cannot exceed 35% of the existing flat rent amount.

For families choosing to pay a flat rent instead of income-based rent, this change will be effective at your next annual recertification.

In accordance with HUD program regulations, Glendale Community Housing has revised the Flat Rent schedule, which will become effective on MARCH 1, 2016.

*** This change will only affect you if you choose to pay flat rent instead of rent based on income.

Families who are currently paying rent based on income, and wish to change their payment method to Flat Rent, the new rent amount will take effect at your next annual reexamination. Glendale Community Housing will not place any family on a flat rent schedule at any time other than your annual reexamination, and only at your choice.

The Flat Rent schedule has been revised as follows:

One Bedroom
$588
Two Bedroom
$731
Three Bedroom
$1,065
Four Bedroom
$1,246

Please note that families that choose a flat rent will receive a utility allowance.

A copy of the flat rent worksheet is available upon request at the Glendale Community Housing Division main administrative office, 6842 North 61st Avenue, Glendale, AZ 85301, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
