Housing Trust Fund (HTF) Rent Limits are available for FY 2017.
Per 24 CFR § 93.302, HUD provides the following maximum HTF rent limits. The maximum HTF rents are:
The Housing Trust Fund Interim Rule at § 93.250 states that in any fiscal year in which the total amount available for allocation of HTF funds is less than $1 billion, the grantee must use 100 percent of its HTF grant for the benefit of extremely low income families or families with incomes at or below the poverty line (whichever is greater). An extremely low income family is defined as a low income family whose annual income does not exceed 30 percent of the median family income of a geographic area. In any fiscal year in which the total amount available for allocation of HTF funds is greater than $1 billion, the grantee must use at least 75 percent of its grant for the benefit of extremely low income families or families with incomes at or below the poverty line. Any HTF funds not used for the greater of extremely low income families or families with incomes at or below the poverty line must be used for very low income families.
In years in which the amount available for allocation is below $1 billion, the HTF rent limits reports published by HUD will only display the rent limit for extremely low income tenants, as described above, and will not include a rent limit for very low income tenants.
