Income Eligibility
Income Eligibility Yes
Income Eligibility Method 200 % of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (State Administering Office per Federal Guidance)
Income Eligibility Type Income refers to total cash receipts before taxes from all sources. These include money wages and salaries before any deductions, but do not include food or rent in lieu of wages. These receipts include net receipts from nonfarm or farm self employment (e.g. receipts from own business or farm after deductions for business or farm expenses). They include regular payments from public assistance (including Supplemental Security Income), social security or railroad retirement, unemployment and workers' compensation, strike benefits from union funds, veterans' benefits, training stipends, allotments or other regular support from an absent family member or someone not living in the household; private pensions, government employee pensions, and regular insurance or annuity payments; and income from dividends, interest, rents, royalties, or periodic receipts from estates or trusts. For eligibility purposes, income does not refer to the following money receipts: capital gains; any assets drawn down as withdrawals from a bank, sale of property, house, or car; tax refunds, gifts, lump sum inheritances, one time insurance payments, or compensation for injury. Also excluded are non cash benefits, such as employer paid health insurance and other employee fringe benefits, food or rent received in lieu of wages, the value of food and fuel produced and consumed on farms, and the imputed value of rent from owner occupied nonfarm or farm housing.
Whose Income Eligibility A family unit of two or more persons related by birth, marriage, and/or adoption who reside together. All such related persons are considered as members of one family. (If a household includes more than one unrelated individual, the poverty guidelines are applied separately to each family and/or unrelated individual, and not to the household as a whole. If an unrelated individual lives with a family, the poverty guidelines are applied separately to each family unit.)

This documentation should be attached to self declaration statement. (3) The self declaration statement should contain a "Certification and Waiver of Privacy Rights" statement.
