  4. As it is unclear how many people would live in a one-bedroom unit, it could be one person with a shelter allowance of $376 per month or two people with a combined shelter allowance of $619 per month. To compensate for this uncertainty, the OW rate was modified. This model assumes that the average shelter allowance for a one-bedroom unit would be the mid-point between the shelter allowance for one person and two people and is set at $497.5.
