With the approval of the council, establish maximum household income limits for all or a portion of the units in housing projects, housing developments or other residential housing financed in whole or in part by the department. A maximum of one-third of the units in a housing project, housing development or other residential housing financed by the department may be rented to households with an income level exceeding 120 percent of the median family income level, as determined by the department. If the income level in any unit exceeds 120 percent of the median family income, the department shall, to the extent practicable, require that the project, development or other housing financed by the department have a percentage of low income units that is higher than the minimum percentages established in ORS 456.120 (Powers of housing authority as public corporation) (19) for projects financed by local housing authorities or income limitations that are lower than the limits described in ORS 456.120 (Powers of housing authority as public corporation) (19) or a combination thereof. Income limits for department programs administered on a statewide basis may be established by reference to the median family or personal income in the state, or in various regions in the state, as determined by the department. This subsection does not restrict the acquisition of manufactured dwelling parks.
With the approval of the council, ensure that financing is provided in the department’s programs for manufactured housing and for the purchase of lots described in ORS 92.840 (Sale of subdivision lots) by manufactured dwelling park tenants.
