The NHA payment standard of approximately 104 percent is based upon the HUD published fair market rents for the Newark metropolitan statistical area. The fair market rent published by HUD is based upon the 40th percentile of rents charged to recent movers (within prior two-year period) in the private rental market. NHA reviews payment standards annually, at the time new fair market rents are published. The current standards are effective as of March 1, 2013.
