RE:                   Revised Income Limits for Admission and FMRs for Continued Occupancy
 
DATE:             August 8, 2006
*************************************************************************************
 
Attached please find the 2006 revised income limits for admission to state-aided public housing and for participation in the AHVP effective August 9, 2006.  Pursuant to 760 CMR 5.06 these income limits are set at two year intervals and are the “Low Income Limits” set by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for a similarly sized household in the city or town in which the LHA is located.  Please review the attached listing and have the appropriate area limits for your Authority adopted by the Board.  Each LHA should adopt limits for each specific household size, one through eight.  You will find the current Fair Market Rents (FMRs) for the area enclosed as well for your use in determining eligibility for continued occupancy.  Remember DHCD only sends the current FMR when it revises the income limits for admission, however, LHAs should use then current FMRs when making determinations of eligibility for continued occupancy.
 
HUD has revised its MSA designations.  Please note the change in terminology this year: “HMFA” stands for “HUD Metro FMR Area”, and “MSA” stands for “Metropolitan Statistical Area”.  We have enclosed the HUD listings showing which municipalities belong in which region; please check your region carefully as there have been some changes from last year.
 
If you have any questions, please contact your housing management specialist.
