  • Importance of Providing Accurate Income Information
    This brochure provides information about the use of the Electronic Income Verification (EIV) System. This system cross references your reported income and actual income. Falsely reported or misrepresented income will jeopardize your voucher and may ultimately result in the loss of your housing subsidy.
