OHA contracted with the Nelrod Company, to develop utility consumption allowances for its public housing properties where electricity, gas and water are metered and utility costs are paid directly to the utility companies. The study was conducted in compliance with HUD Regulations found at 24 CFR 965, Subpart E-Resident Allowances for Utilities.

The allowances are based upon the reasonable consumption of an energy conservative family of modest circumstances and consider the basic essentials needed for a living environment that is safe, sanitary and healthful. The allowances for your community are listed on the reverse side of this document. 

Where applicable, a resident with a verified disability may request relief from excess utility surcharges. OHA will determine whether a nexus (connection) exists between the relief requested and the disability. OHA must also determine if the request is reasonable. All requests should be made to the Property Management Office.

THE FOLLOWING PROPERTIES ARE ALL UTILITIES PAID BY OWNER AND THEREFORE NO UTILITY ALLOWANCE APPLIES:
