Affordable Housing Income Limits

Find Out if You Qualify

The BRA works with developers to create middle-income housing opportunities. Most BRA opportunities are available to households which earn between 70% and 100% of area median income (AMI).

To see if you might qualify for BRA affordable housing opportunities, please consult the chart below.  If your income is not within this range, we encourage you to contact some of the many other housing opportunities within Boston, listed on our Other Affordable Housing Resources page.

Please be aware that an Income Certification Process is a required component of application review. The Income Certification Process is coordinated between the applicant and the marketing agent for each respective development.
