2005-B-09: 2005 Admission Income Limits

To: All Housing Companies
     Owners, Managing Agents and Site Managers

From: Jane I. Berrie, Director Housing Management Bureau

Date: March 24, 2005

Subject: 2005 Admission Income Limits


Attached for your use is HUD's revised income limit schedule, effective February 11, 2005. The schedule is to be used for all tenant admissions under the federal Section 236, Rent Supplement, RAP, and Project-Based Section 8 programs. The schedule is also to be used to determine the New York State alternate income criteria for the nonfederal programs.

HUD income limits for the five boroughs of New York City have not changed since the previous schedule was issued, effective January 28, 2004. Since the limits have increased in most other geographical areas, applicants who were rejected on or after February 11, 2005 due to excessive income should be reconsidered in light of the revised limits and reinstated to their original place on the waiting list if found to be eligible.

I. Federally-Assisted Developments

II. Non-Federally-Assisted Developments

An applicant who is over the maximum income limit for an apartment ( based on the 7 or 8 times annual rent formula) may be eligible for admission if the income does not exceed the median income adjusted for household size for the area in which the development is located (alternate income criteria).

To determine the alternate income criteria, find the location of your housing development on the attached schedule. Then find the Very low-Income limit for the number of persons in the household and multiply that number by two. Use the higher of the alternate income criteria or the maximum income limit for admission eligibility. A surcharge may be added to the rent for applicants admitted using the alternate income criteria ( see 9 NYCRR, Section 1727-4.2 [d] for surcharge schedule ).

If you have any questions about the alternate income criteria, please refer to Management Bureau Memorandum #93-B-21 (September 10, 1993), which contains a sample computation, or call Justine Alston-Payne at (212) 480-7340.
