Q: Can a landlord or tenant ask if they can pay the difference if the rent is higher than they can afford?

A: No. Once a rent amount is approved by the Housing Authority, the tenant will pay the amount we state based on household income. A landlord is not allowed to ask for more money other than what is approved. There can be no side agreements verbally or in writing. This would constitute fraud and will not be tolerated. We never want to see this happen, so if you are a landlord or tenant do not be pressured to partake in this type of behavior.
