Before I invest time into getting sources and asking a well defined question, I want to make sure this question is on topic.
I saw this BBC article describing how six figure salaries in San Francisco are classified as low income with the following passage:
In San Francisco, high rents have driven the government's "low income" threshold of $117,400 (£87,970) almost as high as the median income for a family of four in the area - $118,400 (£88,630).
While falling below this mark does not automatically entitle families to government housing assistance such as subsidies and public housing, it is a factor that is considered.
I want to know more about this, specifically my question would be something like "Are any people who make over $100,000 getting housing benefits?" But fleshed out with prior research and well defined.
Is this on topic? I think it is, because it is a descriptive question about the effect of policy, but other similar questions are sometimes closed as off topic or sent to Law.stackexchange or personal-finance.stackexchange (where they are usually ignored).
