Key Points

  • As of April 6, there are 26 positive cases of COVID-19, 124 pending test results and 626 confirmed negative test results, totaling 776 tests administered so far. Of the 26 positive cases, 13 have recovered; one is a death associated to COVID-19.
  • The location of COVID-19 cases in Brunswick County is a frequently asked question. Patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 are in isolation in their homes located within the majority of zip codes throughout the county. Brunswick County citizens should assume that community transmission of COVID-19 is present in their neighborhoods and take the appropriate precautions.
  • See a full list of food resources and programs available to those who need assistance in the full update (contact and/or applications/qualifications might be necessary).
  • If you recently traveled to Brunswick County from another country, another state, or even another county in North Carolina, you need to take responsible, proactive measures to quarantine yourself and any fellow travelers now. Stay at home unless you are visiting an essential service or operation (like visiting the grocery store, pharmacy, medical office, or work), exercising outdoors or helping a family member.
  • Brunswick County requires individuals to contact county departments via phone or email first and to schedule appointments for in-person visits if necessary.

HCV Payment Standards

Payment Standards are “the maximum monthly assistance payment for a family assisted in the voucher program (before deducting the families total tenant payment),” 24 CFR 982.4(b). The Total Tenant Payment (TTP) represents 30% of the family’s monthly adjusted income.

The Payment Standard for the family is the lower of:

  1. The payment standard for the family unit size, which is defined as the appropriate number of bedrooms for the family under the PHA’s subsidy standards, or
  2. The payment standard for the size of the dwelling unit rented by the family.

For example, a family is eligible to lease a three (3) bedroom unit but selects a two (2) bedroom unit. The voucher payment standard for a two (2) bedroom unit would be used to calculate the housing assistance payment because that would be the lower of the two methods. However, if the family is eligible to lease a three (3) bedroom and finds a three (3) bedroom unit, the three (3) bedroom voucher payment standard would apply.

Note: The voucher payment standard includes a utility allowance for the unit. The utility allowance is based on the lower of the family voucher size or the unit size selected by the family. View more information.
