Payment Standards Effective January 1, 2016
Consistent with the City’s responsibility to affirmatively further fair housing and facilitate the deconcentration of poverty, the City of Tucson Public Housing Authority (PHA) is proposing the development of two sets of payment standards. Utilizing the Hypothetical Small Area Fair Market Rents and Core Based Statistical Area (CBSA) Ratios provided by the Department of Housing and Urban Development found at http://www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/fmr/fmrs/FY2016_code/2016summary_sa.odn, the PHA has developed a high cost area set of payment standards for zip codes identified as having a CBSA Ratio greater than 1.0. The proposed Payment Standards may be viewed by clicking here.
