Income Eligibility Guidelines

Below are the Department's annual adjustments to the Income Eligibility Guidelines (IEGs), to be used in determining eligibility for free and reduced price meals or free milk.

These guidelines are used by schools, institutions, and facilities participating in the National School Lunch Program (and Commodity School Program), School Breakfast Program, Special Milk Program for Children, Child and Adult Care Food Program and Summer Food Service Program. The annual adjustments are required by section 9 of the National School Lunch Act.

They are effective from July 1 through June 30 every year.
