  • Public-private partnerships
  • Low-income housing tax credit gap financing

What Income Levels will Qualify for Affordable Housing?

The Affordable Housing Bond is an investment to support and enrich the lives of residents with household incomes that are 30%, 50%, 60%, and 80% of AMI.

AMI stands for Area Median Income. It is calculated and released every year by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
