Recertifications

KCHA must regularly verify your Section 8 eligibility. We must also make sure that you continue to pay your fair share of rent and utilities. This process happens in different ways, depending on your rent program.

WIN Rent

Households that are able to work take part in the WIN Rent program. KCHA does a full review of these families every two years. Learn more about WIN Rent full recertifications. If a household's income changes, if certain expenses go up, or if a family member moves into or out of the home in between full reviews, KCHA may also do an interim review. Learn more about WIN Rent interim recertifications.

EASY Rent

Elderly or disabled households on a fixed income (e.g. Social Security, SSI, GAU, a pension) take part in the EASY Rent program. KCHA does a full review of these families every three years. Learn more about EASY Rent full recertifications. If a household's income changes, if certain expenses go up, or if a family member moves into or out of the home in between full reviews, KCHA may also do an interim review. Learn more about EASY Rent interim recertifications.

Informal Hearings

Recertifications may affect your share of the rent, your energy assistance supplement, and/or the size of the home for which you are eligible. KCHA will provide an explanation of the changes if you have any questions.

If you believe that KCHA did not follow its policies or HUD rules in making its decision, you may ask for an informal hearing. You must make the request within 10 days of KCHA providing its explanation. Requests must come through the Section 8 office, either orally or in writing. Learn more about informal hearings.
