It is defined as either (a) a building where the owner or occupant meets the definition of “low-income households” listed above, (b) a multifamily building where at least 66% of the households meet the definition of “low-income households” listed above, (c) buildings owned by non-profit organizations or government that meet the definition of “low-income households” listed above, or (d) buildings where there are contracts or other legal instruments in place that assure that at least 66% of the housing units in the building will be occupied by low-income households.
