Subject: 2018 State Income Limits
State Income Limits apply to designated programs and are used to determine applicant eligibility (based on level of household income) and calculate affordable housing cost for applicable housing assistance programs. Note that use of State Income Limits is subject to a particular program’s definition of income, family, family size, effective dates, and other factors. In addition, definitions applicable to income categories, criteria, and geographic areas sometimes differ depending on funding source and program resulting in some programs using other income limits.
The Briefing Materials (page 2) explain California’s 2018 Income Limits and were updated based on: (1) changes to income limits the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released on April 1, 2018 for its Public Housing and Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program and, (2) adjustments the State Department of Housing and Community Development made based on State statutory provisions and its 2013 Hold Harmless (HH) Policy.
