Area Median Income In Morgantown

Affordable housing program eligibility is always determined by one's income. Each household's income is compared to the incomes of all other households in the area. This is accomplished through a statistic established by the government called the Area Median Income, most often referred to as AMI. The AMI is calculated and published each year by HUD.

HUD often uses an area larger than a city to determine the AMI because HUD anticipates those searching for housing will look beyond individual cities during their housing search. For Morgantown, the AMI is calculated from all households within Monongalia County.

In Morgantown, HUD calculates the Area Median Income for a family of four as $76,200

Most affordable housing programs determine eligibility based on the percent of AMI a given household's income is. Among the programs that determine eligibility based on the AMI are Section 8, HOME, LIHTC, Section 515, 202 and 811.

Rental assistance is a type of housing subsidy that pays for a portion of a renter’s monthly housing costs, including rent and tenant paid utilities.

You can get much needed help for your rental expenses, saving you possibly up to 70% of your monthly adjusted income...

Section 8 of the Housing Act of 1937 was designed to assist income-eligible families to rent safe, decent, and affordable housing. Since then the Section 8 Program has assisted literally hundreds of thousands of families to afford suitable housing, who otherwise would have been homeless, or living in substandard housing. Over the years the Section 8 Rental Assistance Program has been enhanced to provide opportunities such as savings accounts toward education or business start-up, and various home ownership options.

The Fairmont-Morgantown Housing Authority is committed to delivering these opportunities to any and all families that qualify for such assistance within our jurisdiction of Marion, Monongalia, Preston, and Taylor Counties.

Our motto: "Helping You Home" means just that, assisting qualifying families with obtaining a home in which they can thrive and grow, and perhaps some day, even call their own.
