Who is Eligible?

Public housing is limited to low-income families and individuals. A Housing Authority determines your eligibility based on: 1) annual gross income; 2) whether you qualify as elderly, a person with a disability, or as a family; and 3) U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status. If you are eligible, Spartanburg Housing will check your references to make sure you and your family will be good tenants. SH will deny admission to any applicant whose habits and practices may be expected to have a detrimental effect on other tenants or on the project’s environment.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has posted income limits to determine eligibility for HUD-assisted programs, as well as eligibility for low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) and tax-exempt bond properties for fiscal year 2021. The limits are effective April 1, 2021. HUD publishes income limits for public housing, Section 8, Section 221(d)(3) and Section 236 properties. HUD also publishes Multifamily Tax Subsidy Projects (MTSP) income limits to determine eligibility for the LIHTC and tax-exempt bond properties. The FY 2021 national median income is $79,900, a 1.783% increase over 2020. Among the 4,766 counties for which HUD publishes limits, 65% will see an increase, 32% have a decrease and 3% have no change. The average change is an increase of 1.04%. In the nation's most-populous state, California, the non-metro rate decreased by 1.41%, so 28 of the state's 58 counties will see a decrease.

NOTE: Spartanburg County is part of the Spartanburg, SC HUD Metro FMR Area, so all information presented here applies to all of the Spartanburg, SC HUD Metro FMR Area. HUD generally uses the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) area definitions in the calculation of income limit program parameters. However, to ensure that program parameters do not vary significantly due to area definition changes, HUD has used custom geographic definitions for the Spartanburg, SC HUD Metro FMR Area.

The Spartanburg, SC HUD Metro FMR Area contains the following areas: Spartanburg County, SC;

 

* The FY 2014 Consolidated Appropriations Act changed the definition of extremely low-income to be the greater of 30/50ths (60 percent) of the Section 8 very low-income limit or the poverty guideline as established by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), provided that this amount is not greater than the Section 8 50% very low-income limit. Consequently, the extremely low income limits may equal the very low (50%) income limits.

Income Limit areas are based on FY 2021 Fair Market Rent (FMR) areas. For information on FMRs, please see our associated FY 2021 Fair Market Rent documentation system.
