Multi-Family Fair Housing Occupancy Reports

USDA Multi-Family Fair Housing Occupancy Report FY 2023

USDA’s annual data for tenants living in Section 515 rental and Section 514 farmworker housing shows that, as of October 2023, the average income for all Section 515 households is $16,047. Just over 88 percent of USDA rental households receive some sort of rental assistance, most commonly Section 521 Rental Assistance (RA). The average income of the 76 percent of Section 515 households receiving RA is $13,696. As has been the case for many years, about two-thirds of the units are occupied by individuals who identify as elderly or disabled. Demographic and economic data for the portfolio are aggregated by state as well as at the national level.
