What is the purpose of the Request for Tenancy Approval (RTA or RFTA)?

The purpose of the RTA along with the lease is to ensure that all required actions and determinations have been completed. By this we mean that the unit is eligible, the lease is approvable, the rent to be charged by the owner is affordable and does not exceed 40% of the family's monthly adjusted income, among other things. If the RTA is not approved the family may continue to search for eligible housing within the timeframe of the issued voucher.
