What are the maximum income limits per family?
The CHA uses HUD income limits to determine program eligibility which is based on 80% of the median income. Applicants should include all income in household (employment, social security, disability benefits, etc.). The current HUD income limits for the Columbia area are:
One Person $35,950
Two Persons $41,050
Three Persons $46,200
Four Persons $51,300
Five Persons $55,450
Six Persons $59, 550
Seven Persons $63, 650
Eight Persons $67, 750
Note: Because HUD establishes Income Guidelines on an annual basis, the CHA recommends that if the applicant family is slightly over income but needs housing assistance, they should apply and the CHA will review the family information when the applicant file reaches the top of the waiting list.
