• 2020 Poverty Guidelines

     

     The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released updates of the poverty guidelines January 17, 2020.

     
    The federal poverty guidelines are used as an eligibility criterion by the Community Services Block Grant program and a number of other federal programs.

    The poverty guidelines are derived from the Census Bureau’s current official poverty threshold, and the figures reflect annual income.
