Enter the area median income (AMI) and the percentage of AMI as rent (%) into the calculator to determine the AMI Rent. 

AMI Rent Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the AMI Rent. 

Rami = AMI * R%/100

  • Where Rami is the AMI Rent ($)
  • AMI is the area median income (AMI) 
  • R% is the percentage of AMI as rent (%) 

How to Calculate AMI Rent?

The following example problems outline how to calculate AMI Rent.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the area median income (AMI). In this example, the area median income (AMI) is given as 5000.
  2. Next, determine the percentage of AMI as rent (%). For this problem, the percentage of AMI as rent (%) is given as 30.
  3. Finally, calculate the AMI Rent using the equation above: 

Rami = AMI * R%/100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

Rami = 5000 *30/100 = 1666.67 ($)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

area median income (AMI) = 6000

percentage of AMI as rent (%) = 40

Entering these values and solving gives:

Rami = 6000 * 40/100 = 2400 ($)
