Question: What is considered poverty level? how do i know if i qualify for the program?
The Federal Poverty level is a measurement issued each year and published in the Federal Registry. The guidelines may be used to determine whether a person is eligible for certain federally funded programs. To find out whether you meet the eligibility requirements for a certain program, you may want to go directly to that program's website and look for their eligibility criteria.
To find out more about the Federal poverty guidelines, you may want to look through the information provided on the United States Department of Health & Human Services webpage.
