Utility Allowances

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program provides participants a utility allowance (UA) to offset tenant-paid utility cost. All utilities that a resident would be required to pay (electric, natural gas, water/sewer, etc.) must be included in the calculation of housing assistance for a family and in determining if a unit is within the applicable Payment Standard.
