Client Income Eligibility Standards updated for 2013

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Each year, LSC publishes Appendix A to 45 CFR Part 1611, which provides client income-eligibility standards based on the Department of Health and Human Services’ (DHHS) most recent federal poverty guidelines. On January 24, 2013, DHHS released the 2013 federal poverty data, and we are revising our regulations to reflect the new information. This update to our regulations is ministerial in nature and does not reflect new policy.

The chart below reflects the most recent guidelines. The information is also published in the Federal Register.
