Poverty Guidelines

Business / Agriculture / Poverty Guidelines: These are monthly or annual income amounts that are used to help determine eligibility for a number of federal food assistance and other programs.

For example, 130% of the income poverty guidelines is the limit for food stamp and free school lunch income eligibility. Sometimes referred to as the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) poverty guidelines.
