What Are Voucher Payment Standards?
Voucher Payment Standards (VPS) and Utility Allowance Schedules are the maximum amount of subsidy NYCHA will pay to the owner on behalf of a voucher holder. NYCHA's payment standard schedule is based on the Fair Market Rent (FMR) for each unit size established by HUD.
The Payment Standard includes a Utility Allowance component of $ 50. So, if an apartment includes utilities, the rent would have to be below $710 to be within the Payment Standard.
