Area Median Income (AMI)

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) calculates a City's AMI as a statistic. This statistic is used to determine applicant eligibility for certain federal housing programs.

Low-income refers to incomes at or below 50% of the AMI
Moderate-income refers to incomes at or below 80% of the AMI

Our CDBG, HOME and ESG programs use AMI to determine applicant eligibility.
