Yes. HUD regulations prohibit assistance to ineligible family members, but mixed-eligibility households may receive assistance from either Section 8 or Low-Income Public Housing. However, assistance will be provided on behalf of family members who are eligible. Income from both eligible and ineligible household members are included in calculating household rent responsibility. Both eligible and ineligible household members are included in the household size when determining the appropriate income limit and eligible number of bedrooms.
Concerning Low-Income Public Housing and §13.5 of the Admissions and Continued Occupancy Plan, a household that includes ineligible family members receives a proportional reduction in their rental subsidy which leads to a higher rent burden. For example, a four person family where three individuals are eligible and one is not will receive 75% of the rental subsidy of a four person family where all four individuals are eligible.
