Am I eligible?

Eligibility for a housing voucher is determined by SAHA based on the total annual gross income and family size and is limited to U.S. citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status. In general, the family’s income may not exceed 50% of the median income for the county or metropolitan area in which the family chooses to live. By law, SAHA must provide 75 percent of its vouchers to applicants whose incomes do not exceed 30 percent of the area median income. Median income levels are published by HUD and vary by location. The maximum income limits per family size are provided for you below:

During the application process, SAHA will collect information on family income, assets, and family composition. If SAHA determines that your family is eligible, the SAHA will put your name on a Waiting List. Once your name reaches the top of the Waiting List, SAHA will contact you to determine your eligibility and issue to you a housing voucher.
