Selecting any of the buttons labeled "Explanation" will display detailed calculation steps for each of the various parameters.

* The FY 2014 Consolidated Appropriations Act changed the definition of extremely low-income to be the greater of 30/50ths (60 percent) of the Section 8 very low-income limit or the poverty guideline as established by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), provided that this amount is not greater than the Section 8 50% very low-income limit. Consequently, the extremely low (30%) income limits may equal the very low (50%) income limits.

Income Limit areas are based on FY 2016 Fair Market Rent (FMR) areas. For information on FMRs, please see our associated FY 2016 Fair Market Rent documentation system.
