income limits

Definition

Maximum income amounts set by a government agency (such as Department of Housing and Urban Development or HUD) that qualify or disqualify an individual or a family to take advantage of its assistance (such as affordable housing) or family care programs. These legal limits may vary depending upon the individual's condition (such as being pregnant), the family size, and geographic location.
