Calculating For Additional Set Asides

Written by Jennifer Borland, Spectrum Enterprises

Many properties have included in the extended low income housing commitment set asides in addition to 40/60 or 20/50.  Most often Spectrum sees properties that include units set aside at 40%, 30%, 20%.  How are the income limits for these set asides calculated?

Given the 50% limits, determining additional set aside limits isn’t very hard:

40% = 50% x 0.8

30% = 50% x 0.6

20% = 50% x 0.4

Using limits for a property placed in service prior to 2009 in Portland, Maine:

            1 person           2 person           3 person          

50%     $27,300           $31,200           $35,100                      

            x     0.8            x     0.8            x     0.8

40%     $21,840           $24,960           $28,080

 

            1 person           2 person           3 person          

50%     $27,300           $31,200           $35,100                      

            x     0.6            x     0.6            x     0.6

30%     $16,380           $18,720           $21,060

 

            1 person           2 person           3 person          

50%     $27,300           $31,200           $35,100                      

            x     0.4            x     0.4            x     0.4

20%     $10,920           $12,480           $14,040

Spectrum recommends having your housing credit agency approve limits before implementing.
