All EPCHA residents must complete a re-certification to determine each family’s continued eligibility for housing under HUD/EPCHA guidelines to include appropriate unit size, monthly rent, family income and household composition.
The re-certification process is handled by the property office staff for your community. Under certain circumstances, home visits may be scheduled by requesting reasonable accommodation.
Every family has the option of completing an interim re certification at any time, if there is a change in family composition, reduction/increase in income or an increase in medical expenses.
All changes in family income, composition or status must be reported to your community's property manager within 10 calendar days of occurrence. Failure to report changes can result in retroactive rent increases or lease terminations. Additional household members may not be allowed to move-in until they are approved by EPCHA.
