Federal Poverty Guidelines - 2021

Calculate your income by clicking on the FPL Income Calculator.

Most programs/clinics allow individuals/families to earn amounts in excess of the FPL. This is often described on their website as "eligibility is limited to individuals/families whose income is equal to or less than (a specified percentage) of FPL income". For example, some programs allow you to earn three times (or 300%) of the FPL. View a table of percentages of the FPL guidelines.
