USDA defines moderate income households as having incomes of less $92,600 (household size 1 to 4) and $122,250 (household size 5 or more). Should the actual household income be greater than the allowable limits USDA does allow for certain "deductions" to reduce the household income for qualification purposes. If considering a USDA loan and the household income is greater than the allowable limit reference the USDA Maryland Income Qualification Calculator to determine if you can still qualify for the USDA mortgage loan.
