In general, we are able to help persons with a total household income at or below 125% of the Federal poverty level.
In some circumstances, we are able to help persons with a total household income up to 200% of the Federal poverty level if they have other qualifying expenses.
Sometimes we receive special grant funding that allows us to offer legal help to clients with incomes above 200% of the federal poverty level but who still are unable to hire legal counsel. Currently we are able to help senior citizens (persons over age 60), veterans, persons with federal tax issues, and persons with mortgage issues even if their income exceeds our normal eligibility criteria.INCOME ELIGIBILITY GUIDELINES – Effective January 2020
