HUD RULE
The office of the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has a 40% Rule which is currently in effect.

This rule states that CalHFA/HUD property owners must make at least 40% of the assisted units that become available each fiscal year to applicants who are in the extremely low-income bracket at the time of admission to the property. The CalHFA/HUD rule also states, "Owners may not select tenants in an order different from that of the waiting list for the purpose of selecting higher income families for residence. While higher-income applicants may be skipped in order to achieve 40% extremely low-income, lower-income tenants may not be skipped in favor of others who have higher income. Because of this ruling, your position on the active waiting list could change.
