Guide to Completing NSP Income Certifications


Date Published: March 2019


This component of the NSP Toolkits is intended for grantees and their partners seeking guidance on calculating annual gross income for the purposes of NSP eligibility determination. Before approving client applications for NSP rental or homeownership assistance, grantees and their partners must determine whether annual gross income is at or below NSP income limits. While there are a range of acceptable methods for collecting and certifying income data, this guide focuses on the methods used in HUD’s HOME Investment Partnership Program.

An income calculation worksheet, formatted in Excel, is embedded at the end of this document.
