Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) System
The purpose of the Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) function within the Real Estate Assessment (REAC) Center is to ensure that limited Federal resources are available to serve as many eligible families as possible by reducing the high incidence of program errors and to improve the integrity and accuracy of information contained in the PIC and EIV systems.

EIV provides a comprehensive on-line system for the determination and verification of various resident information and income that PHAs use in determining rental subsidy. Additionally, EIV collects supplemental employment and benefit information through data sharing agreements with the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). These agreements, in combination with HUD’s PIC system and EIV reports, provide an analysis of income and benefit information that the EIV team monitors in order to assist Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) and HUD Field Offices to identify and resolve certain regulatory deficiencies and to implement proactive measures to effectively mitigate risk and program waste, fraud and abuse.
