I'm in 80/20 housing. I recently registered for membership to a job training program in NYC, but I'm thinking of going back to school full time as well. My recertification packet says that I can be a full time student if "at least one student participate[s] in a program receiving assistance under the Job Training Partnership Act or Workforce Investment Act, or under other similar, federal, state, or local laws." I plan to participate in this program while also pursuing my studies full time. But my Landlord says that while I can participate in this program, I am not allowed to return to school full time because that does not qualify as "job training."

But the job training center is not an accredited place where I can even be a full time student. The handbook gave examples of full time student-only households which qualified because one or more members participated in this program, but she seems to think that they aren't allowed to participate in any other studies. Is she right? Or am I right, that because I'm participating in this program, I can be a full-time student?

Sounds like a question for HUD or HPD. Read your lease very carefully

I thought full-time students are not allowed to receive public assistance benefits or other similar benefits?

If you are a single individual you can not return to school full time. There would need to be two people in the household.

You can only go to school part time.

I spoke to soon... There are exemptions but I can not seem to locate exactly what those exemptions are.

@Underscore1: The full-time student rule is an IRS rule that applies ONLY to units financed by tax credits or tax exempt bonds. Contact an HPD Housing Ambassadors -- community-based service providers in NYC who help people with affordable housing questions and stuff. A listing of HPD’s Housing Ambassadors is found here: http://www1.nyc.gov/site/hpd/renters...bassadors.page
