2018 HUD median and area income for Georgia Counties

Median household income is used for a range of reasons, that include calculating eligibility for low to moderate mortgage financing; commonly known as as CRA (Community Reinvestment Act).

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac each have a special loan program that is partially dependent on the household median income (i.e. Home Possible Mortgage and the My Community Mortgage).

If you’re searching for a mortgage and your household income is at or lower than  the limits displayed below, tell this to the lender or mortgage broker. The benefit may be a lower downpayment, closing cost assistance, grant money, cheaper interest rate or reduced mip/pmi.

The U.S. Census Bureau defines median household income as follows:
“Median income is the amount which divides the income distribution into two equal groups, half having income above that amount, and half having income below that amount. Mean income (average) is the amount obtained by dividing the total aggregate income of a group by the number of units in that group. The means and medians for households and families are based on all households and families. Means and medians for people are based on people 15 years old and over with income”
