What is affordable housing?
Affordable housing is housing available to low- and moderate-income households. Households who earn at or below 80% of the area median income (AMI) are considered low-income, and households who earn between 80-120% of the Area Median Income are considered moderate-income. These income limits are determined each year by the State and Federal governments. Rents for affordable households are based on household income.
