Enterprise Income Verification Specialist Online

The fundamentals of HUD's Enterprise Income Verification System

HUD's Enterprise Income Verification System was developed as a tool to simplify the income verification process and improve the accuracy of tenant rent calculations. Use of the system has been mandatory since January 2010.

EIVS Online covers everything you need to know about the HUD Enterprise Income Verification System including its purpose, how it developed, how to sign up, how to maintain access, which reports are required, how to interpret reports, how to resolve any discrepancies and how to ensure the security of the data.

EIVS Online is appropriate for all managers, assistant managers, management office compliance staff and any other persons involved with the tenant certification process.
