General Assistance - Appendix C
GA Housing Maximums
(Heated & Unheated Rents)
                                
NOTE: NOT ALL MUNICIPALITIES SHOULD ADOPT THESE SUGGESTED HOUSING MAXIMUMS!  Municipalities should ONLY consider adopting the following numbers, if these figures are consistent with local rent values.  If not, a market survey should be conducted and the figures should be altered accordingly. The results of any such survey must be presented to DHHS prior to adoption. Or, no housing maximums should be adopted and eligibility should be analyzed in terms of the Overall Maximum—Appendix A. (See Instruction Memo for further guidance.)
