Citizens' Housing and Planning Association: HUD Releases FY2013 Income Limits - December 11, 2012

HUD Releases FY2013 Income Limits - December 11, 2012

HUD issued revised FY2013 income limits effective December 11, 2012, superceding the limits posted on December 4.  The FY2013 30%, 50%, 60% and 80% income limits are 1-5% below the FY2012 limits in most areas because HUD is projecting declines in median family incomes.  The few areas receiving increases include the Boston-Cambridge-Quincy MSA, where the 80% limit will rise by 3.6% (from $65,000 to $67,350) due to an adjustment for high housing costs and Nantucket (where all limits will rise).  The declines in the income limits would have been greater but for a HUD policy that limits annual changes in income limits to 5% (up or down).  LIHTC projects are also protected from income limit cuts once they are placed in service.
