Income & Rent Limits

Housing supported by the Office of Housing is rent- and income-restricted to ensure that the affordable units we fund are occupied by those who need it most. The below income and rent limits are based off HUD figures, annually updated, and posted as soon as they are available. Each program has a particular income focus and requirements, and is thus listed separately.

We understand that HUD has released its income limits dataset for 2020. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Office of Housing is delaying its publication of a revised income and rent schedule. The 2019 rent and income limits, published on our website, remain in effect for all OH-administered housing programs at this time.
