Income Guidelines

Many programs and services are offered to citizens based on their household income. The Federal Poverty Level (FPL) is the standard typically used. Some programs only serve the very poor (100% FPL), others serve families at higher income levels (150%, 185% or 200% FPL). A family is considered as a child or children and the natural or adoptive parents residing together in a household.

Below are the guideline tables. They change in April of each year.
