What is the highest annual income a family can earn while legally living in taxpayer-subsidized housing funded through the federal public housing program?
Under the federal public housing program, there is no limit on the amount of income a family can earn while legally living in public housing. The program has income limits for determining who can move into public housing, but once they move in, there is no legal limit on how long they can stay if their income rises. In New York City, a family with an annual income of up to $498,000 has been living in taxpayer-subsidized housing since 2008.
