* 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 income limits may equal the very low (50%) income limits.
Income Limit areas are based on FY 2017 Fair Market Rent (FMR) areas. For information on FMRs, please see our associated FY 2017 Fair Market Rent documentation system.
