Income Limits

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) establishes income limits based upon the Area Median Income (AMI) for each county in each state. These limits are used in determining a family’s initial eligibility to participate in certain SCCHA administered housing assistance programs, such as:

  • Housing Choice Voucher
