Administrative Fees are payments from HUD to housing authorities for their administration of the HCV program. Much like the Operating Subsidy for public housing, administrative fees support PHA staff to help low-income families find and move into affordable housing. Administrative fees also cover the administrative costs of providing critical supportive services that help the most vulnerable low-income families move towards self-sufficiency. The ongoing administrative fee is paid by HUD to PHAs each month, and is based on the number of housing units a PHA currently has under contract.
