What is Affordable Housing?

Affordable housing is defined as buildings in which at least 25% of the dwelling units are, or are expected to be, occupied by households earning no more than 80% of the area or State median income, whichever is higher. Affordable housing documentation must be submitted with the Affordable Multifamily Energy Efficiency Program application package.

A project may qualify for affordable housing incentives by either Proxy Eligibility or Rent Roll Eligibility.
