A

Yes, if a program participant leases a unit where the rent charged exceeds the FMR, the recipient/subrecipient may use rental assistance funds for that unit for an amount above FMR. However, the contract rent charged must be determined to be reasonable in relation to rents being charged for comparable unassisted units in the area. HUD will only provide rental assistance on behalf of a program participant for a unit if the rent for that unit is reasonable.
