What is the Low Income Criteria?

To be considered as low income family depends greatly on the size of your family and the state in which you reside. Approximate guidelines are as follows: Individual: $16,245, family of 2: $21,855, family of 3: $27,465, family of 4: $33,075, etc. Keep in mind this is in the 48 contiguous states; Hawaii and Alaska slightly differ. For an exact amount you may need to contact a local assistance agency because eligibility may change through-out every state.
