Example: A single parent earning minimum wage
in Washington County with 2 children.
Payment Standard = 110% of 2 BR FMR or $917
Adjusted Monthly Income = $1,265 [minimum wage]
30% of Adjusted Monthly Income = $379
Amount of maximum rental assistance = $917 minus
$379 or $538
 If a family rents a unit with rent/utility costs that
are exactly equal to the Payment Standard,
Section 8 pays the landlord the Payment
Standard less 30% of the family’s AMI.
 Assistance is $538 in our example.
 If rent and utilities are below the Payment
Standard, the family still pays 30% of the AMI
and Section 8 pays the rest.
 It is the Section 8 program which saves money
when gross rent is less than the Payment
Standard.
 The Voucher covers the Payment Standard
minus 30% of the AMI and the family pays the
rest.
 In our example, the Voucher pays $538 and the
family pays up to 40% of its AMI for rent and
utilities.
 The family pays more than 30% of AMI when the
gross rent is more than the Payment Standard.
