What are the housing subsidy amounts?

A home loan subsidy is available in South Africa through the First Home Finance (formerly FLISP) program. But what are the subsidy amounts?

The subsidy ranges from R38 878 to R169 264, depending on your income.

The lower your income within that bracket, the higher your subsidy.
