Section 8 Voucher Household & Income Changes

The head of household associated with a Section 8 Voucher is required to report in writing any change in household membership, or any change in household income, within 30 days of when the change occurred. Misrepresenting a household's circumstances to KCHA could result in voucher termination.

Please note: this review will be completed using modified documentation, verification, and review policies and procedures implemented under KCHA's Catastrophic Plan in response to the COVIDÔÇÉ19 pandemic.
