AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Affordable Housing
In general, housing for which the occupant is paying no more than 30 percent of their income for gross housing costs, including utilities. Please note that some jurisdictions may define affordable housing based on other, locally determined criteria and that this definition is intended solely as an approximate guideline or general rule of thumb.  Retrieved from Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development at https://www.huduser.gov/portal/glossary/glossary_a.html.
