Due to the lapse in Congressional Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2019, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is closed. This website is supported by a cooperative agreement funded under a prior appropriation. Current functions will remain operational but no new functions will be added during the lapse in appropriations. For more information, see HUD Contingency Plan for Possible Lapse in Appropriations.

How is Area Median Income calculated?

Date Published: October 2012

HUD publishes annual income limits based on household size that are used to determine the maximum household income. Once household income is determined, compare it to HUD's income limit for that household size. If the income for that household size is at 50% of the median or less based on the chart, that household will count towards the 25% low-income set-aside. View the current NSP income limits.
