Flat Rent Calculator/Rent Schedule

On February 25, 2015, NYCHA published a Significant Amendment to the Fiscal Year 2015 Annual PHA Plan on flat rent policies. The public has an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed changes which will be made to comply with the legal requirements of the FY2014 Omnibus Appropriations Act (PL 113-76) and the guidance provided by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the Public and Indian Housing HUD in PIH Notice 2014-12 (HA).

The Amendment to the FY 2015 Annual PHA Plan includes a proposal to increase flat rents for NYCHA households starting with the starting with the June 1, 2015 third quarter annual reviews. HUD requires NYCHA to increase its flat rents over the next three years to reach 80 percent of Fair Market Rent (FMR), as mandated by law.

The vast majority of NYCHA households (80 percent) who pay 30 percent of their income toward rent will not be impacted by this increase. NYCHA will, however, increase rents for the 20 percent of NYCHA households who currently pay less than 30 percent of their income towards; on average these households pay 23 percent of their income for rent.

The rents in the flat rent schedules are base rents only and do not include recurring charges, e.g. reserved parking, appliance charges.

This calculator should only be used as a guide. The actual flat rent amount is calculated automatically by the tenant data computer system and is available to management staff at each management office. A Lease Addendum and Rent Change Notice listing the new rent is sent after the completion of the Annual Income Review.
