2017 Income Limits Now Available

On Friday, April 14, 2017, HUD released the 2017 Income Limits.  To access the new income limits, visit the HUDUser web site at https://www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/il.html.  nAll certifications effective 4/14/2017 or later will include the new income limits.nProperty managers should remember that Income Limits are considered only at Move-in and, in very limited cases, at the Initial Certification.  Income Limit changes do not affect a current resident’s eligibility for the HUD Multifamily Housing programs (Section 8, PRAC, etc.) when that resident is already receiving subsidy/housing assistance. nNew Income Limits must be entered in to your software program.  In most cases, this means that you will need to update the income limit tables in your site software.  Check your income limit tables and if the new 2017 limits are different, update pertinent fields.  nIf you don’t know how to check your income limits, refer to your software documentation, your software vendor’s web resources or call your software vendor’s customer support number.
