Subsidy Standards

The Iowa City Housing Authority will issue a voucher for a particular bedroom size; the bedroom size is a factor in determining the household's level of assistance. The following guidelines will determine each household's unit size without overcrowding or over-housing:

Number of BedroomsNumber of Persons
MinimumMaximum
011
112
224
336
448
5510

The Iowa City Housing Authority may grant exceptions to its established subsidy standards if the Housing Authority determines the age, sex, handicap, or relationship of family members or other personal circumstance justifies the exception. The Housing Authority will review documents from DHS, physicians, or other similar sources to make this determination.
