Median Income Scales

Median income scales are used to calculate what percentage a household's income is of (usually state) guideline amounts.

Median scales are similar to Poverty Scales for the federal poverty calculation.

Median Income is a different feature than HUD's Area Median Income.

Median scales are entered and maintained on the Admin > Median Income Scales page.

Three options in the Financial Information block are relevant:

  • Show Percentage of Median Income

  • Percentage of Median Income

  • Include Median Income for Eligibility

Many sites will have more than one form with this block on it. Each needs to be configured.
