Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Income Guidelines

Effective Feb. 1, 2013

The following chart represents HUD income limits for Dallas County.  Please call the Housing and Human Services Department for updates at 972-721-4800.

Extremely Low Income:  30% of the area median family income or below

Low Income: 50 % of the area median family income or below

Median Income is defined as the middle income level at which one-half of all households in the community earn the money, and one-half of all households earn less.

The median area family income is estimated by HUD on a local basis, and is further broken down according to family size. HUD updates these income limits annually.
