SFMNP Income Guidelines

Last Published: 04/09/2015

The SFMNP Income Eligibility Guidelines (IEGs), which are established each year based on WIC Income Eligibility Guidelines, were published in the Federal Register on March 31, 2015, (80 FR 17027). The adjusted income eligibility guidelines are used by State agencies in determining the income eligibility of persons applying to participate in the SFMNP. State agencies may implement the new income eligibility guidelines concurrently with the implementation of income eligibility guidelines under the Medicaid and Commodity Supplemental Food Programs (CSFP), but the IEGs must be implemented no later than July 1 of each year. On January 22, 2015, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published its annual update of the poverty guidelines (80 FR 3236). The HHS guidelines are used by a number of Federal programs, including WIC and the Medicaid Program, as the basis for determining and updating program income eligibility limits.

To be eligible on the basis of income, an applicant’s gross household income (i.e. before taxes are withheld) must be no more than 185 percent of the U.S. Poverty Income Guidelines. The guidelines for SFMNP are shown below.
