Income limits and eligibility

For all affordable housing described on this website, eligibility is primarily based on household income. CHAD uses the Area Median Income (“AMI”) standard, as established annually by the US Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) to set eligibility requirements for many of its rental housing options.  Different types of affordable housing (apartments, single family homes) will have different income limits for different size units (1 bedroom, 2 bedroom etc.), and your household income cannot exceed those limits.
