Affordable housing is based on a household's percentage of Area Median Income (AMI), which is set by the federal government on a yearly basis. Housing is considered affordable if it costs about one-third or less of household income, and is regulated so the rent can't go up dramatically over time.
In order to be eligible, you must be 18 years old, and your household income needs to be in a specific range for each affordable housing opportunity. Applicants will be required to meet additional guidelines, including asset limits, and selection criteria to qualify.
Use the chart below to understand the AMI income categories we use to determine eligibility for affordable housing, which vary by household size, so you can see where you and your family fit in.
