Free HOPWA/Ryan White Part A Resident Rent Calculator
RDE Systems, LLC, makers of eCOMPAS and e2Community are pleased to offer a web-based tool to help housing case managers calculate
tenant rent and subsidy payments for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Housing Opportunities for People With AIDS (HOPWA) and Health
and Human Services' Ryan White Part A Housing programs.
This tool is provided free of charge with pride to people living with HIV/AIDS, their families, and those who serve them.
INSTRUCTIONS: When completing the rent calculator, include the total ANNUAL gross income of all eligible household members
(e.g., payment amount multiplied by number of payment periods per year for all income sources). As per HUD regulations, agencies must obtain proof of income
documentation such as pay stubs, budget letters, Social Security Income/Disability award letters, Income/Self Employment Verification (if no pay stubs are
given or if self-employed), and Zero Income Affidavit* (if consumer reports no income) prior to performing the official rent calculation. Furthermore, agencies
are required to maintain copies of annual income documentation in the consumer chart.
If a consumer is self-employed or reports zero income, they must complete and notarize the Income/Self Employment Verification form
or the Zero Income Affidavit form
and have a copy saved in the chart along with the accompanying rent calculator.
