Section 8 / Housing Choice Vouchers
 
Voucher Payment Standard, FMR & Utility Allowance

The Voucher Payment Standard (VPS), which is established based on Fair Market Rents (FMRs), is the maximum subsidy FHA can provide toward the contract rent.  The contract rent is an agreed upon amount between the housing authority and the landlord and includes the consideration of tenant-paid utilities.  

 

The FMRs are set annually by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to determine the value of rental units by bedroom size and amenities within geographic locations.  The schedule contains the FMRs specific to Barnstable County, MA.  
 

Utility allowance is an amount deducted from the household's rent portion when the tenant is responsible for paying the utilities in an unit.
