Find Affordable Housing

What is the definition of "Affordable Housing"?

To be considered “affordable,” housing must meet the following criteria:

  1. Homes for sale: Must be sold to buyers whose total housing obligation (principal and interested repayments, taxes, hazard insurance, and mortgage insurance) does not exceed 30% of the buyer's household income. The buyer's total household income cannot exceed the area median income, as established by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, by household size.
  2. Rental units: Must be rented at or below the maximum program rents and the first tenants must have household income below 80% of the area median income adjusted for family size.

*The following links provide information on income levels and rents that meet these guidelines. Please visit the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Developments website for more information.


This Affordable Units' Grid includes mixed income developments with units that are affordable to Households at 80% of the Area Median Income and below.
