Affordability Calculator

A calculator and a pen on top of a small, red notebook.

The 2020 Housing Affordability Calculator (XLS) is used in the preparation of an Annual Progress Report (APR) to make affordability determinations based on income levels provided in the Official State Income Limits published annually by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).

Created by HCD, the calculator covers APRs through CY 2020.

Every year, each California jurisdiction (city council or board of supervisors) must prepare an Annual Progress Report (APR) on the jurisdiction’s status and progress in implementing its housing element.
