*AMI, or Area Median Income, refers to U.S. Housing and Urban Development annual Income Limits for New York City. HUD establishes these Income Limits each year to administer federal housing funds, such as housing tax credits and rental assistance benefits. Each metropolitan area has unique Income Limits. In government-administered affordable housing, these Income Limits establish maximum eligible household incomes for new rentals or homes for sale.

In New York City, because housing costs are so high, Income Limits are not calculated using New Yorkers’ incomes. In NYC, Income Limits are based on the income needed to afford currently available market rate housing.
