Affordable Housing Rental Program

Washington D.C. AMI Income and Rent Restrictions

 The income limits and maximum rents allowed for most Affordable Rental Units in Washington D.C. are listed below, effective 2023. The income and rent limits are based on median income statistics for the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria Metro Area issued annually by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Note: Maximum incomes allowed for tenants of affordable rental units are based on the number of persons in the household, not on the size of the unit.
All Gates Hudson properties accept Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers and Housing Grants
