What Percent Of Rent Does Section 8 Pay?
How much rent do you pay if you live in Section 8, HUD Housing, Public Housing, Rural Rental Assistance, or have a Housing Voucher? The simple answer is: You pay 30% of your income.
To calculate, simply divide your annual gross income by 40. Another rule of thumb is the 30% rule, meaning that you can put 30% of your annual gross income in rent. If you make $90,000 a year, you can spend $27,000 on rent, and so your monthly rent should be $2,250.
