Board is the provision of meals on a regular basis in connection with the provision of lodging. It is not counted as rent for Rent Assistance purposes. Only the amount paid for lodging in a "board and lodging" situation is counted as rent for Rent Assistance purposes. The student’s estimate or statement of the amount paid for lodging should generally be accepted without further investigation, provided it is within the guidelines. If the amount paid for lodging is not able to be identified, two-thirds of the total amount will be considered as the rent component.
