COVID-19 Resources: Coronavirus information for low-income households.
According to the federal government, housing is affordable when rent or mortgage payments (principal, interest, taxes, and insurance) plus utilities are no more than 30% of the occupant’s monthly income.Federally funded affordable rental housing can be split into two main categories, Tenant Based and Project Based. Tenant Based affordable housing programs, like Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers, provide rental assistance directly to qualifying households.Project Based affordable housing programs create or rehabilitate homes for low-income households. Some Project Based programs, like LIHTC, create units that are guaranteed to remain affordable for qualifying households whereas programs like Project-Based Section 8 create apartments where rental assistance payments are made directly to landlords on behalf of occupying tenants.
