Who qualifies for affordable housing? What are the income limits?

Housing is considered affordable when a household does not spend more than 30 percent of its income on housing expenses.  

Affordable housing programs generally serve households with incomes at or below 60 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI) for rental housing or at or below 115 percent of AMI for owning a home.
