HUD sets Income Limits for each area based on the median family income in that area. Each Public Housing Agency (PHA) will use the Income Limit set for the jurisdiction that the PHA covers. Therefore, a family may be eligible for one PHA but not another. The number of people in a household determines the Income Limit that is set for determining the family's eligibility for the program that they are applying for. Below are the Income Limits for Los Angeles County, CA:
Fair Market Rents are HUD's determination of the average rents in a particular area for each bedroom size. The FMRs are set each year based on the rental rates of unsubsidized units so that participants in HUD programs have equal access for affordable housing.
