The changes mean more people will be eligible for housing subsidies, but rents could also rise. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development recently announced the 2023 Regional Median Income (AMI) and associated income limits that determine whether households in a given area are eligible for the Housing Assistance Program. HUD calculates that the maximum rent for a family of four receiving 60% of AMI, or $52,680, could increase to about $1,320. Under the 2022 limit, 60% of AMIs are $50,100, and the rent paid by this family never exceeded about $1,250.

High AMI prices are a double-edged sword for low-income residents struggling to pay their rent. While higher income limits will make more people eligible for rent and home improvement assistance, landlords who rent to tenants through most federal housing programs will still be able to use their previous AMI. If a tenant’s lease expires, they may legally increase their rent. The federal government tried to balance what was happening across the country.
