Income and Rent Limits
Housing Tax Credit, Tax Exempt Bond, HOME, Neighborhood Stabilization and Housing Trust Fund rental development programs
2020 Project Income and Rent Tool (XLSX) – (updated 7/1/2020)
This tool was developed for use by TDHCA staff, primarily in the Compliance Division, to determine whether income and rent limits prescribed by law were being met, and the tool is being shared with the public solely as a courtesy. This tool is NOT to be considered as either a definitive or exclusive statement or application of law or as legal advice. Neither the tool itself nor any output from or conclusions drawn from the tool may be relied upon as conclusively correct information or used a defense to any contrary determination, finding, conclusion, or assertion by any relevant or cognizant oversight or enforcement entity (including TDHCA) of an applicable rent or income limit. Again, these are simply the income and rent limits that the Department expects to use when monitoring. It is anticipated that from time to time as the Department identifies aspects of the tool that it needs to amend, correct, or improve, it will do so, but the Department cannot and does not commit to providing notifications or changes to the tool as posted on its website or as used by TDHCA staff.
These income and rent limits were produced using data released by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and reflect the changes made to income limits through the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (rural limits, hold harmless etc.). Failure to enter the accurate project specific data will result in erroneous data.
