How much will I pay for rent?

A family’s anticipated gross income determines not only eligibility for assistance, but also determines the rent a family will pay and the subsidy required. Your rent will be approximately 30% of your monthly income. For a more detailed explanation please contact Virginia Park at (515) 288-5616.

How is rent calculated?
