Looking for an Affordable Home?
The City of Eugene does not own, operate, build, or manage housing. Below is information for affordable housing providers in the area.
What is “Affordable” Housing?
Across the United States, housing costs are considered “affordable” if the monthly rent or mortgage, plus utilities, add up to no more than one-third (or 30%) of gross household earnings.
What is Area Median Income (AMI)?
Area Median Income, commonly referred to as “AMI,” is a federal calculation based on census data from every geographic area. The number matters a great deal when looking at affordable housing in Eugene – an area with a current AMI of $44,900 for a one-person household, or $51,300 for a four-person household.
Households earning less that are very likely to be adversely affected by housing costs. Below is the 2018 AMI chart for the Eugene-Springfield area, by household size. Consider that many people who work, including full-time work, earn less than 100% AMI. This is why Eugene is concerned about income levels, housing affordability, and creating more units for people up to 80% AMI.
