The Subsidized Housing Inventory (SHI) is used to measure a community's stock of low- or moderate-income housing by the Department of Housing and Community Development. A housing development is eligible to be included if it is approved for federal or state subsidy to assist in creating housing that is affordable and the affordable housing units are subject to a long-term use restriction that restricts occupancy to households eligible for low- and moderate-income housing for a specified term. In a rental development, if at least 25% of units are affordable, then all units in the rental development are included on the SHI.
