How Congressman Dennis Ross plans to raise rent on HUD assisted homes

A bill from Congressman Dennis Ross would allow large rent increases for low-income people assisted through the Housing Choice Voucher and Public Housing programs and properties converted by public housing agencies to Project-Based Rental Assistance, including working families, the elderly, and people with disabilities.

Under the Ross proposal, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) would determine the rent formula for elderly and disabled households, while state and local housing agencies could choose from six different rent formulas that would apply to all other households.
