What Income Does HUD Exclude?
(c) Annual income does not include the following: (1) Income from employment of children (including foster children) under the age of 18 years; (2) Payments received for the care of foster children or foster adults (usually persons with disabilities, unrelated to the tenant family, who are unable to live alone);
Adjusted Income is defined as Annual Income minus any HUD allowable deductions. So, to calculate your Adjusted Income, you must first calculate your Annual Income, and then subtract certain amounts deemed “deductible” by HUD.

How is income calculated for HUD?
The amount of assistance paid on behalf of the family is calculated using the family's annual income less allowable deductions. HUD program regulations specify the types and amounts of income and deductions to be included in the calculation of annual and adjusted income.
Chapter 5: Determining Income & Calculating Rent - HUD
A family's anticipated gross income determines not only eligibility for assistance, but also determines the rent a family will pay and the subsidy required. The anticipated income, subject to exclusions and deductions the family will receive during the next twelve (12) months, is used to determine the family's rent.
Why Determining Income and Rent Correctly is Important - HUD
Public housing is limited to low-income families and individuals. An HA determines your eligibility based on: 1) annual gross income; 2) whether you qualify as elderly, a person with a disability, or as a family; and 3) U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status.
