Description


ShareSpot logoAn online tool called FreeRentCalculator can ease the task of calculating tenant rent and subsidy payments for HUD and HOPWA programs, according to the AETC ShareSpot Blog. Developed by New York City with HRSA and other funding, the tool simplifies the ardous task of arriving at housing payment figures, greatly simplfying life for case managers and clients. Users can readily input information on, for example, gross income and deductions and allowances (e.g., medical expenses). 

FreeRentCalculator has been adopted for use in several dozen states and is an outgrowth of eCOMPAS, a New York focused tool that has helped clients achieve better health outcomes in such terms as improved CD4 levels and reduced viral load. Read more in ShareSpot's Free, Web-Based Tool Saves Time for Case Managers and Clients.
