To qualify to live in Legacy Square, individuals and families must have household incomes below 60% of the area median income (AMI) – which in the local area, is those earning under approximately $64,560 for a 2-person household.  Various numbers of apartments will be set-aside for residents earning under 25%, under 30%, under 50%, and under 60% off AMI. There will be a local preference for Santa Ana residents.
