A recertification is a required PHA review of a Public Housing/PAPMC’s household’s income and composition. PHA requires recertifications for residents in Conventional Sites and Scattered Sites every two years, unless you are on ceiling rent or an Elderly or Disabled household on a fixed income who are recertified every three years. PAPMC/Tax Credit residents are required to recertify on an annual basis.

At recertification, PHA requires the following documentation from Conventional, Scattered, and PAPMC households:

  • Your income and the income of all of your household members
  • Any changes to your family composition
  • Your assets
  • Your expenses

The Public Housing and PAPMC Programs are completing all recertifications by mail and drop off only:

You must complete your recertification by completing the Recertification Documentation packet you receive by mail or Property Manager drop off.  You can return your Recertification packet with verification of your household income to your Management Office within five business days via the following:
