Income limits are used to determine if a household is eligible to receive housing assistance. Income eligibility is determined by comparing the annual income of an applicant household to the income limit for their family size. The income limit for the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program is 50%. Other Marion County Housing Authority housing programs have varying income limits.
