Median Family Income Pennsylvania

Home buyers meeting with a loan officerMost PA county assistance programs are based on household income. The cut off income is 80% of the median income where the home is located. To determine whether you might qualify for one of the county programs, simply cross the county with the number of people who will occupy the residence on the chart below. Use the "gross" annual income (before taxes), not the net or take home pay to estimate your eligibility.

Determining gross annual income can be tricky if bonus income or over time pay is part of the annual income. A mortgage loan officer can accurately determine whether you meet the income limits.
