IF YOUR AUTHORITY IS LOOKING AT THE SECTION 8 PROGRAM
Consider the following:
The intent of Rent Reasonableness is to provide the Authority with immediate access of comparable units and will allow easy update and standardized reporting. Not only will the Authority fully comply with the requirements of the Section Eight Management Assessment Program (SEMAP), but will also better utilize program resources by ensuring market comparability of contract rents.
