Fiscal Year 2018 Income Limits to be Released March 30

Published by Thomas Stagg on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 - 12:00am

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has set a target release date for new income limits of April 1 of each year. In 2011, HUD set a target release date for income limits of Dec. 1 of every year.  However, in 2015 Congress changed how the extremely low-income limit was determined, making it infeasible for HUD to be able to achieve the Dec. 1 income limit release target.

Since then, HUD has received comments from various income limit users stating that the new unpredictable release date has caused burdens on families, PHAs and other users. These comments urged HUD to develop a new predictable, scheduled release date. In response, HUD set a new target date for releasing income limits of April 1 of each year.  Because April 1, 2018 is a Sunday, HUD has set the ambitious goal of having the limits released on Friday, March 30.
