HUD Issues 2017 Income Limits - March 10, 2015

On April 18, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued the 2017 income limits that determine eligibility for assisted housing programs including the Public Housing, Section 8 project-based, Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher, Section 202 housing for the elderly, and Section 811 housing for persons with disabilities programs. Median family incomes went up in 16 of the 19 FMR areas in Massachusetts, and income limits went up in 11 of the 19 areas - primarily in the eastern half of the state - while declining in eight areas. The 80% limit in the Boston-Cambridge-Quincy FMR area rose by $4,600 for a household of three (to $70,350).
