2010-B-04: 2010 Admission Income Limits

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

From: Robert Damico, Downstate Director
          Housing Management Bureau

Date: May 18, 2010

Subject: 2010 Admission Income Limits


Attached is HUD's revised income limit schedule, effective May 14, 2010. 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 non-federal programs.

Note that the income limits for all of the geographical areas of New York have been revised since the previous schedule was issued in 2009. Most income limits have increased, including those for the five boroughs of New York City, but some, such as Westchester's, have decreased. Applicants who were rejected due to excessive income on or after May 14, 2010, should be reconsidered in light of the revised limits and reinstated to their original place on the waiting list if found to be eligible.

1. Federally-Assisted Developments

If you have questions about income limits for federally-assisted developments, please call Linda Kedzierski at (212) 480-2021, or e-mail her at LKedzierski@nyshcr.org. Income limits are available on-line at www.huduser.org.

2. 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 Veda Ramos at (212) 480-7345, or email her at VRamos@nyshcr.org.
