Coming April 1: Small Area FMRs
Effective April 1, 2018, Fort Worth Housing Solutions (FWHS) will begin using Small Area Fair Market Rents (SAFMRs) to calculate rental assistance in the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program. SAFMR stands for “Small Area Fair Market Rent.” SAFMRs are typical rent levels (including utilities except telephone and cable) within a zip code depending upon the number of bedrooms.
What’s new about this approach?
Until now, rental assistance for families with vouchers was based on a single rent level for an entire metropolitan area. Under the new approach, every zip code will have its own rent level. The rent level in each zip code will determine the amount of assistance families with vouchers will be eligible to receive.
Project-Based Voucher Program will be accepting pre-applications for 3 bedroom units at the following property:
Stallion Pointe Apartments
9053 S Race St
Fort Worth, TX 76140
Pre-applications will be accepted at the address above starting Thursday, March 22, 2018 through Thursday, March 29, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. every day except Sunday. Persons who have a disability and require assistance to complete the pre-application may contact the property at 682.990.3950.
What do YOU think about fair housing, affordable housing and access to opportunity in your community?
We are gathering input for an Assessment of Fair Housing survey. The goal is to help increase residents’ access to opportunity in all neighborhoods and to get local input. Please consider taking the survey to help determine how federal grant funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) can best be used.
Fort Worth Housing Solutions (FWHS) is building vibrant and sustainable communities that improve the quality of life for the families it serves through the purchase, acquisition, and construction of affordable housing. These properties serve a mix of incomes in which some residents receive direct rental subsidy and others do not. Communities are close to employment opportunities, public transportation, and other amenities.
