Overview

This training module covers what you need to know about the Enterprise Income Verification System as it pertains to the Housing Choice Voucher program.

The Enterprise Income Verification System (EIV) is a system intended to provide a single source of income-related data to PHAs and HUD for use in verifying the income reported by tenants participating in the HCV program. Benefits of the system include:

  • Increases the efficiency and accuracy of income and rent determinations
  • Reduces incidents of underreported and mis-reported household income
  • Removes the barriers to verifying tenant-reported income
  • Addresses material weaknesses in a PHA’s reexamination process and program operations
  • Assures that more eligible families are able to participate in the program

In this course we will cover the following:

  • What is the Enterprise Income Verification System?
  • How is it used?
  • How to read an EIV report
  • Keeping EIV data secure
  • Record keeping and reporting requirements
  • Fraud

The EIV system is a great tool for use by PHAs and we aim to help you be confident in your knowledge of it as you fulfill your role with the HCV program.

Make sure to take notes, go back over anything you don’t understand, and write down any questions you might have. And, as always, familiarize yourself with your PHA’s administrative plan and any policies and procedures regarding the use of the EIV system.
