Certificate of Rent Paid (CRP): Waiver Programs - Adult Foster Care

If you own, operate, or manage a group residential housing (GRH) facility covered by waiver programs, including adult foster care, you must provide a Certificate of Rent Paid (CRP) to each resident if either of the following apply:
  • Property tax was payable in 2017 on the property.
  • You were not required to pay property tax, but you made payments in lieu of property taxes.
Your residents may qualify for a refund only if your facility has state or federal waivers to provide housing and other services for people who would otherwise need nursing home care.

Are there exceptions to this requirement?

Yes. Do not issue CRPs to residents if either of the following apply:
  • Your property is tax-exempt and you did not make payments in lieu of property taxes.
  • A resident’s entire care is paid under any of the following assistance programs:
    • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
    • Minnesota Supplemental Aid (MSA)
    • Group Residential Housing (GRH)
Note: If a resident has income other than SSI, MSA, or GRH, they may qualify for a refund. You must provide them a CRP only if they used some of their other income to pay rent.

How do I complete CRPs for residents?

For each qualifying resident, follow the instructions below when calculating lines 1 and 3 on the CRP:

  1. Check the appropriate box on the CRP to indicate “Adult Foster Care.”
  2. On line B (above line 1), enter the amount of GRH payments you received on behalf of the resident.
  3. Multiply the number of months, or fraction of months, the resident lived in the facility by $760 (the assumed monthly rent for 2017, adjusted each year). Enter the result on line 1.
  4. Multiply the amount from line 1 by 0.17 (the percentage of rent considered to be property tax). Enter the result on line 3.
  5. Sign and date the CRP and include your phone number.

Can I use software to generate multiple CRPs?

Yes. For a list of certified software products, see Software for Generating CRP Forms.
