Family with a per capita monthly disposable income of less than 3,799 yuan and a per capita housing area of less than 18 square meters can apply for affordable housing. At the same time, the application for public rental housing in urban areas in Wuxi was adjusted. The applicant shall be non-house family with a per capita monthly disposable income of less than 3,799 yuan and has not obtained any compensation for demolition and resettlement in urban areas within five years prior to the date of application.
Compared with the previous policy, the adjustment raised the per capita disposable income of families applying for low-rent housing by 180 yuan and raised per capita disposable income of families applying for affordable housing and public rental housing by 289 yuan.
