Subsidy Calculator

The calculator below can help you figure out if the home you want to rent is affordable within the limits of the Section 8 program. It can also give you a sense of how much you would pay each month, and how much KCHA would pay. Remember, every home is different, so you must correctly fill out all of the fields below to receive the most accurate possible estimate.

Also remember that the listed estimates are based on general rules. These amounts can vary depending on other factors not covered by the calculator. Because of this, the estimates shown here are not a guarantee. You should always talk with your housing representative before making any final rental choices.
