In accordance with program requirements, all NSP activities must benefit low and moderate income households whose income does not exceed 120% of the area median income (AMI). In addition, at least 25% of allocated funds must be utilized for the benefit of households whose income does not exceed 50% of the AMI. Contingent upon project type and amount of NSP assistance, long-term affordability periods and monitoring requirements apply.
