Poverty Level

Many programs use these figures, or a percentage of these figures, in determining eligibility. Some of these programs are SNAP (formerly called food stamps), QMB, SLMB, QI, QDWI, Medicaid, energy assistance or LIHEAP, and Weatherization programs. The income guidelines for the programs will be changed when each program publishes its own income guidelines. However, some programs, such as TANF or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, SSI or Supplemental Security Income, and the Earned Income Tax Credit program, do NOT use these figures in determining eligibility.

  • 1 person household, $1,255 per month.
  • 2 person household, $1,703 per month.
  • 3 person household, $2152

These figures are for the 48 contiguous states and the District of Columbia. These figures may change each year.
