How much rent will I have to pay?
In general terms, a household will not pay more than 30% of the adjusted monthly income for rent. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the HACM on behalf of the participating household. The participant household then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program.
