HHS Updates Poverty Guidelines
HHS recently updated the poverty guideline for year 2003. This guideline is mostly used for the Affidavit of Support in immigration application. 2003 Poverty Guidelines for the 48 Contiguous States and the District of Columbia are:


Poverty

Size of family unit guideline

1 $8,980
2 12,120
3 15,260
4 18,400
5 21,540
6 24,680
7 27,820
8 30,960


For family units with more than 8 members, add $3,140 for each additional member. (The same increment applies to smaller family sizes also, as can be seen in the figures above.)

The poverty guidelines are calculated each year from the latest published Census Bureau poverty thresholds--not from the previous year's guidelines. Besides the inflation adjustment, the figures are also adjusted to standardize the differences between family sizes.

The poverty guidelines are a simplified version of the Federal Government's statistical poverty thresholds used by the Census Bureau to prepare its statistical estimates of the number of persons and families in poverty. The poverty guidelines issued by the Department of Health and Human Services are used for administrative purposes--for instance, for determining whether a person or family is financially eligible for assistance or services under a particular Federal program. The poverty thresholds are used primarily for statistical purposes. Since the poverty guidelines in this notice--the 2003 guidelines--reflect price changes through calendar year 2002, they are approximately equal to the poverty thresholds for calendar year 2002 which the Census Bureau expects to issue in September or October 2003. (A preliminary version of the 2002 thresholds is now available from the Census Bureau.)
