2019 Payment Standards 

The Board of Commissioners approved the 2019 Payment Standards. The new Payment Standards go into effective on October 1, 2018.

RENT INCREASE REQUEST

In order to streamline the rent increase process for landlords and clients, FWHS no longer requires a new lease; however, the client’s signature is still required to insure the client has been informed of the increase. A copy of the rent increase request form which has all the required information needed to process the rent increase can be download from our website here . This document must be signed by the client and landlord. The client’s signature does not bind the client to the requested rent amount if the client’s portion of rent increases. Landlords are allowed to request a rent increase within 60 days of the anniversary date each year. Landlords may log into Partner Portal to determine the anniversary date of the client.

 

After receiving the documentation and approving the increase, FWHS will notify both parties of the rent change with a Rent Change Notice with the effective date, Total Contract Rent, Total Resident Rent, Housing Assistance Payment and Utility Reimbursement, if applicable. If the increase is not approved, a denial notice will be sent to the landlord and client.

Coming April 1: Small Area FMRs

Effective April 1, 2018, Fort Worth Housing Solutions (FWHS) will begin using Small Area Fair Market Rents (SAFMRs) to calculate rental assistance in the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program. SAFMR stands for “Small Area Fair Market Rent.” SAFMRs are typical rent levels (including utilities except telephone and cable) within a zip code depending upon the number of bedrooms.

 

What’s new about this approach?
Until now, rental assistance for families with vouchers was based on a single rent level for an entire metropolitan area. Under the new approach, every zip code will have its own rent level. The rent level in each zip code will determine the amount of assistance families with vouchers will be eligible to receive.

Dear Landlords,

We are in the process of recruiting landlords to join our Landlord Advisory Committee for the Housing Choice Voucher Program. The purpose of the committee is to advise the agency on policies and procedures that may impact landlords. If would like to be a part of the Landlord Advisory Committee, please email RaVonda Thompson at rthompson@fwhs.org or call her at 817-333-3667.

Thank you!


 ATTENTION !

Dear Landlords,

We are having a Lease-UP-Fair on September 20, 2018 at 1:00pm for our clients and would like to invite you to participate.  If you have vacancies and are  looking for a quick turn-around to get them filled, please RSVP to RaVonda Thompson at rthompson@fwhs.org or call 817-333-3667 by September 18, 2018.

Voucher holders will be present to fill out paperwork and inspections will be expedited.

If you plan to attend, please be here at 12:30pm to set your table up and have lunch on us.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me (817) 333-3667.

Thanking you in advance for your cooperation.

Attention! 

Fort Worth Housing Solutions, formerly Fort Worth Housing Authority, now conducts HQS inspections biennially rather than annually. If your unit is scheduled to be inspected, you will receive a notice as usual. If your unit is not scheduled to be inspected this year, you may still request a rent increase 60 days before your tenant's recertification.

 

Please list your available units at www.gosection8.com.  FWHS has over 300 participants with vouchers looking for units.
