Utility Allowances

Each year the allowance for tenant-furnished utilities is reviewed and adjusted for changes in utility rates. The revised utility allowance schedules are approved by the VHA Board of Commissioners before being published. Residents have the right to inspect VHA’s records documenting the basis on which the utility allowances were established and revised.
