The income limits below apply to the following programs: Sonoma County Density Bonus, Sonoma County Single-Family Development Fee Deferral, County Fund For Housing, California Redevelopment Law
These income limits apply only to Sonoma County Community Development Commission-assisted units. They are NOT to be used as a guide for programs regulated by any agency other than the Sonoma County Community Development Commission. It is up to each property owner to determine which regulations preside if a unit is regulated by more than one program.
Effective July 2, 2020
*The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has made its final decision to implement a new State Income Limit Hold Harmless (HH) Policy beginning 2013.
**AMI = Area Median Income
These rent limits are calculated using the formula in California Health & Safety Code 50052.5 & 5005.3
Subtract from the maximum rent the approved utility allowance for any utilities that the tenant pays in addition to the rent. Confirm the appropriate utility allowance with the Sonoma County Community Development Commission. See utility allowances here.
The rents are computed based on the income limits for an assumed household size equal to the number of bedrooms in the unit plus one person. For example, the rents for a three-bedroom unit are based upon the income limits for a four-person household.
