The Middle-income Access program (MIAP) addresses the middle income, sometimes referred to as the “missing middle,” population with incomes too high for LIHTC units but often overburdened by market rents. Typically, the missing middle is comprised of renters whose income is between 80 percent and 120 percent Area Median Income (AMI).
