Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Income Guidelines

HUD Income Guidelines

Effective April 2021, Median Income is defined as the middle income level at which one-half of all households in the community earn the money, and one-half of all households earn less. The median area family income is estimated by HUD on a local basis, and is further broken down according to family size. HUD updates these income limits annually.

  • Extremely Low Income: 30 percent of the area median family income or below
  • Low Income: 50 percent of the area median family income or below
  • Moderate Income: 80 percent of the area median family income or below
