IMPORTANT UP-FRONT INCOME VERIFICATION NOTICE

The Southern Iowa Regional Housing Authority is now required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to use Up-Front Income Verification (UIV) Sources whenever possible to verify income information for program participants.  UIV is the verification of income through an independent source that systematically maintains income information in computerized form for a large number of individuals.

Current UIV resources that we may be using include the following:

  • Enterprise Income Verification System (EIV) HUD’s System provides Employment Information, Quarterly Wages, Unemployment Insurance, Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits, and National Directory of New Hires (NDNH).
  • Tenant Assessment Subsystem (TASS) – HUD’s online system for Social Security (SS) and Supplemental (SSI) information.
  • State Wage Information Collection Agencies (SWICA’s)
  • State systems for the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program
  • Credit Bureau Information (CBA) credit reports
  • International Revenue Services (IRS)
  • Private sector databases (e.g. The Work Number)

We will use additional UIV resources as they become available.  This will be done before, during and/or after examination and/or re-examination of household income as necessary to ensure participants are reporting and paying rent on the appropriate amount of income.

It is important to note that UIV data will only be used to verify a participant’s eligibility for participation in a rental assistance program and to determine the level of assistance the participant is entitled to receive.

You are required to disclose and report all sources of money (income) you and any member of your family receives.  Failure to disclose and report sources of income is FRAUD.  The consequences of not reporting all sources of money (income) may include:

  • Termination of rent assistance and eviction
  • Criminal prosecution, imprisoned up to 5 years and/or fined up to $10,000.
  • Immediate repayment for any excess rental subsidy you received.
  • Prohibited from receiving future rental assistance.
  • Any other appropriate remedy.

Supplemental and Optional Contact Information for HUD-Assisted Housing Applicants


SUPPLEMENT TO APPLICATION FOR FEDERALLY ASSISTED HOUSING
This form is to be provided to each applicant for federally assisted housing
Instructions: Optional Contact Person or Organization: You have the right by law to include as part of your application for housing, the name, address, telephone number, and other relevant information of a family member, friend, or social, health, advocacy, or other organization. This contact information is for the purpose of identifying a person or organization that may be able to help in resolving any issues that may arise during your tenancy or to assist in providing any special care or services you may require. You may update, remove, or change the information you provide on this form at any time. You are not required to provide this contact information, but if you choose to do so, please include the relevant information on this form.

Phone:

  Email:

Relationship to Applicant:

Reason for Contact: (Check all that apply)

Commitment of Housing Authority or Owner: If you are approved for housing, this information will be kept as part of your tenant file. If issues arise during your tenancy or if you require any services or special care, we may contact the person or organization you listed to assist in resolving the issues or in providing any services or special care to you.

Confidentiality Statement: The information provided on this form is confidential and will not be disclosed to anyone except as permitted by the applicant or applicable law.

Legal Notification: Section 644 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 (Public Law 102-550, approved October 28, 1992) requires each applicant for federally assisted housing to be offered the option of providing information regarding an additional contact person or organization. By accepting the applicant’s application, the housing provider agrees to comply with the non-discrimination and equal opportunity requirements of 24 CFR section 5.105, including the prohibitions on discrimination in admission to or participation in federally assisted housing programs on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, and familial status under the Fair Housing Act, and the prohibition on age discrimination under the Age Discrimination Act of 1975.

The information collection requirements contained in this form were submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520). The public reporting burden is estimated at 15 minutes per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. Section 644 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 (42 U.S.C. 13604) imposed on HUD the obligation to require housing providers participating in HUD’s assisted housing programs to provide any individual or family applying for occupancy in HUD-assisted housing with the option to include in the application for occupancy the name, address, telephone number, and other relevant information of a family member, friend, or person associated with a social, health, advocacy, or similar organization. The objective of providing such information is to facilitate contact by the housing provider with the person or organization identified by the tenant to assist in providing any delivery of services or special care to the tenant and assist with resolving any tenancy issues arising during the tenancy of such tenant. This supplemental application information is to be maintained by the housing provider and maintained as confidential information. Providing the information is basic to the operations of the HUD Assisted-Housing Program and is voluntary. It supports statutory requirements and program and management controls that prevent fraud, waste and mismanagement. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information, unless the collection displays a currently valid OMB control number.
Privacy Statement: Public Law 102-550, authorizes the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to collect all the information (except the Social Security Number (SSN)) which will be used by HUD to protect disbursement data from fraudulent actions.
