    Income Limits


    Homeownership and multifamily developments that participate in the funding programs of Florida Housing Finance Corporation must meet a variety of income and rent requirements as determined by the FHFC program used to finance the development. Affordability is defined in terms of the income of the people living in the home. The family must be income eligible in terms of area median income (AMI), adjusted to family size.


    Extremely Low Income – AMI Levels

    Rule Chapter 67-48.002, F.A.C, governing Florida Housing’s Tax Credit program, provides the following definitions:


    (39) “ELI Household” or “Extremely Low Income Household” means a household of one or more persons wherein the annual adjusted gross income for the Family is equal to or below the percentage of area median income.


    (41) “ELI Persons” or “Extremely Low Income Persons” means extremely low income persons as defined in Section 420.0004(9), F.S., or in a competitive solicitation. 


    (42) “ELI Set-Aside” or “Extremely Low Income Set-Aside” means the number of units designated to serve ELI Households.


    The Request for Applications will provide directions for applying the correct area median income for the ELI households to be served in the Development. 


    The updated ELI amounts for each county can be found at the following link:
