Will child and transportation expenses be deducted when calculating our contribution to rent?


Different programs have different ways they handle this. Usually, transportation expenses may not be deducted when calculating the tenant rent payment. In some programs (like Section 8), child care expenses and medical expenses can be deducted to a certain extent.

You will need to verify with each housing office how this gets calculated.
