Providing Housing Resources With an Eagerness to Serve
The HUD Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) System provides integrated income data from one source. Via the Internet, housing partners at various levels are required to use EIV for applicants and tenants to improve income verification and reduce improper HUD housing assistance payments.
EIV provides the following information:
Data in the EIV System is highly sensitive and confidential. HUD requires all users of the EIV System to maintain strict security measures to ensure the integrity of the data. Users must be certified by the EIV Coordinator twice a year.
Property owners/management agents must establish and implement policies and practices to demonstrate compliance with EIV reporting requirements. This includes setting up a Master File used to monitor tenant compliance and incorporate EIV reports for Move-in, Interim, and Annual Certification processes.
Updates and changes to the EIV system are communicated through the Rental Housing Integrity Improvement Project (RHIIP) Listserv.
The HUD Handbook 4350.3, REV-1, Change 4, Occupancy Requirements of Subsidized Multifamily Housing Programs, has been updated to include the EIV requirements. The EIV requirements can be found in Chapter 9 of the handbook.
March 8, 2013, HUD issued an EIV update, Housing Notice 2013-06, Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) System. This Notice supersedes Notices H 2011-21, H 2008-03, H 2009-20, and H 2010-10. The Notice is posted on HUDCLIPS.
Any questions related to EIV use in Project-Based Section 8 Housing should be directed to the Multifamily Help Desk at (888) 767-7588, (202) 401-7984 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
