Six Figure Salary Considered Low Income for Bay Area Family of Four
Updated On: Apr 25, 2017

The federal government came up with new numbers on what qualifies as low income in the Bay Area.

Even if a family brings in a six figure salary - if that family lives in San Francisco, San Mateo or Marin counties - they will still be considered low income, according to the Department of Housing. That means they will be eligible for housing assistance.

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development put out updated numbers in San Francisco and on the Peninsula saying a family of four making $105,000 is now considered low income. Compare that to just last year when the threshold was $98,000 for the same area.

A look at what annual salaries are considered low income for families (of four) living in other Bay Area counties

Alameda and Contra Costa counties: $80,000

Santa Clara County: $84,000

Napa County: $74,000

Solano County: $64,000

The new definitions and the higher income threshold mean more families across the Bay Area can qualify for housing assistance and affordable housing programs.
