Examining Increases in HUD Income Limits in Low-Income States


Report Acceptance Date: February 2024 (15 pages)

Posted Date: February 22, 2024

This report is a response to a Congressional directive that HUD received in the Joint Explanatory Statement for Division L of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2023 to “report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations within 180 days of enactment of this act on how using a national AMI for nonmetropolitan areas as a floor would impact rent calculations in and the administration of any programs using income limits to set rents.” The report examines the shares of households that are eligible for HUD assistance across various geographic areas using HUD’s current methodology for calculating income limits and examines the potential impact on rent of setting minimum income limits based on the higher of an area’s state non-metropolitan median family income or the national non-metropolitan median family income.
