(ii) Step 2. Multiply the amount determined in paragraph (c)(2)(i), (Step 1) by a fraction for which: (A) The numerator is the number of family members who have established eligible immigration status; and (B) The denominator is the total number of family members.

(iii) Prorated housing assistance. The amount determined in paragraph (c)(2)(ii), (Step 2) is the prorated housing assistance payment for a mixed family.

(iv) No effect on rent to owner. Proration of the housing assistance payment does not affect rent to owner. The family must pay the portion of rent to owner not covered by the prorated housing assistance payment." (24 C.F.R. § 5.520(c)(2))

It's pretty much the same deal with means-tested federal programs (TANF, Medicaid, CHIP, SSI, and SNAP (formerly food stamps)).
Define "determine". I think that is the key word in your paraphrase.

Pardon me. My "paraphrase" was copied & pasted directly from the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations. The answer you seek is most likely found therein.

The issue made headlines in November with news that Zeituni Onyango, an aunt of President-elect Barack Obama, was living in Boston public housing while in the country illegally.
The federal government, which funds the lion's share of the nation's public housing, requires only that illegal immigrants share a home with at least one family member who is in the country legally and pay their share of the rent.

Was that a state program or Section 8? (Note: I already know the answer--do you?)

They are both tax-funded, so it's irrelevant whether it's federal or state.

Uh, sure, if you discount andreabeth's outrageous claim upthread, which was about Section 8 housing in California.
