Payment Standards


A payment standard is Cleburne Housing’s maximum allowable monthly assistance; Payment standards include rent and utilities. HUD determines the fair market rent (FMR) for a moderately priced unit in the area; Cleburne Housing sets the payment standards based on FMR.  If a family rents over the payment standard they will be required to pay the additional amount; however they may not pay more than 40% of their adjusted monthly income for rent. 

Effective May 1, 2020 - Payment Standards are divided by Zip Codes:

 Since Payment Standards are based on zip code area, CHA cannot determine how much the rent will be subsidized until the applicant has chosen a unit.  



Occupancy Standards


Occupancy standards are established to ensure that units are occupied by families of the appropriate size. HUD regulations provide for the smallest number of bedrooms needed to house a family without overcrowding the unit. Participant families are allowed one bedroom for each two persons regardless of age/gender:
