In Massachusetts, the state 40B program is designed for families making less than 70% of the median income of the "area" (which seems to be Metropolitan Statistical Area -- Boston and Worcester costs are figured differently, and we're just over the border into Worcester's area). The part where costs-as-percentage-of-income comes in is when 40B prospects try to get mortgages. In some cases it's a very narrow window between "makes a low enough income to qualify for a 40B home" and "makes a high enough income to get a mortgage for it". :} Ellen Seebacher Mosaic Commons / Sawyer Hill Ecovillage (Berlin, MA)
