Cost of Rent

Dothan Housing Authority (DHA) calculates a household’s maximum housing voucher subsidy, or the total amount that DHA will pay toward rent each month. This amount is based on the payment standard and the cost of rent and utilities for a unit by bedroom size.

Calculate Your Rent

Beginning April 1, 2018, Small Area Fair Market Rents (SAFMRs) payment standards are set up by zip code. Payment standards are not the maximum rent that can be charged by landlords. The Payment Standard is the maximum amount of assistance a family can receive. The amount of rent the family can afford is based on the family’s income. Regardless of the SAFMR or payment standard, the amount of rent an owner can charge must be “reasonable” in comparison to unassisted rental units in the neighborhood with similar amenities.

The estimator is a tool to estimate the portions of rent to be paid by DHA and the family. DHA will make the final determination of rent distribution. To complete the estimator, you must use certain information from the estimator DHA gave the family. The estimator will be invalid if different information is used.

The estimates provided here are for information only and are not binding for any party.
