Area Median Income In Carrizo Springs

Affordable housing program eligibility is always determined by one's income. Each household's income is compared to the incomes of all other households in the area. This is accomplished through a statistic established by the government called the Area Median Income, most often referred to as AMI. The AMI is calculated and published each year by HUD.

HUD often uses an area larger than a city to determine the AMI because HUD anticipates those searching for housing will look beyond individual cities during their housing search. For Carrizo Springs, the AMI is calculated from all households within Dimmit County.

In Carrizo Springs, HUD calculates the Area Median Income for a family of four as $43,200

Most affordable housing programs determine eligibility based on the percent of AMI a given household's income is. Among the programs that determine eligibility based on the AMI are Section 8, HOME, LIHTC, Section 515, 202 and 811.

The Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program aims to create affordable rental housing for low and very low income families.

From 1993 to 1999, 2 low income apartment communities containing 102 rental apartments have been constructed and made affordable to low income persons in Carrizo Springs by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
