The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) establishes income limits based on the Area Median Income (AMI) for each county in each state. These limits are used in determining a family’s initial eligibility to participate in HACSM’s administered housing assistance programs.

For a family to be eligible for federal housing assistance in San Mateo County, the total household income must not exceed the established yearly income limits as listed in the table below.
