Income limits are listed by dollar amount and family size, and are published by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for different areas of the United States. They are primarily used to determine if an applicant for the Public Housing, Section 8, or other program subject to Section 3(b)(2) of the United States Housing Act of 1937, as amended, meets the relevant income eligibility requirement for admission. These limits are effective as of the date indicated.

Income limits are based on the HUD estimates of median annual family income. As required by statute, the definition of "Very Low-Income" is tied to 50 percent of the median income for an area while "Extremely Low-Income" is tied to the greater of: 30 percent of the median income or the poverty guideline as established by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) provided this amount is not greater than 50% of median income for an area. The definition of "Low-Income" is tied to 80 percent of the median income for an area. The term "area" is defined such that the higher of the local median income or the State nonmetropolitan median income is used in income limit calculations.

To be eligible for LHA HUD Low-Income Rental Family or Elderly/Disabled apartments, applicant family income must not exceed the Low (80% of Median) Income Limits. For compliance with HUD Income Targeting requirements, not less than 40% of Public Housing admissions each year must be Extremely Low-Income families.
