FY Income Limits

HOME Income Limit data are available from FY 1998 to the present. Select one of the links below to view data from the corresponding fiscal year.

The HOME income limits are calculated using the same methodology that HUD uses for calculating the income limits for the Section 8 program, in accordance with Section 3(b)(2) of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937, as amended. These limits are based on HUD estimates of median family income, with adjustments based on family size. The Department's methodology for calculating nationwide median family income figures is described in Notice PDR-2001-01. For more information about how HUD calculates the HOME Program income limits, read HOMEfires Volume 3, Number 8, or visit HUDUSER.ORG, the Web site for HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research, for more general information.

Family sizes in excess of 8 persons are calculated by adding 8% of the four-person income limit for each additional family member. That is, a 9-person limit should be 140% of the 4-person limit, the 10-person limit should be 148%.
