NEWS:

May 14, 2018:

HUD published the 2018 HOME income and rent limits. They are effective 6/01/2018

Things to remember about HOME income and rent limits:

1.) There is no 45 day transition. You must begin using the new limits on the effective date;

2.) HOME limits are not “held harmless” like LIHTC limits. If HOME income limits go down, you must use the lower limits for both income and rent.

You can find the HOME limits either by following the link https://www.hudexchange.info/programs/home/home-income-limits

April 1, 2018:

HUD has released the 2018 income limits. They are effective 4/1/18 and must be in use no later than 5/15/18. Be sure to check the MTSP limit chart to determine which income limits to use for your property.
