Rent Index

According to Chapter 222 of the City Code, Rent Index is defined as the statistical index governing rent increases. The rent index shall be subject to change every six months commencing with January 1 and July 1 of each year, and shall remain unchanged during each six-month period. The rent index shall be computed by taking the twelve-month average of the United States Housing Component of the Consumer Price Index-U for Rent (Residential) immediately preceding the beginning of each six-month period.
