Federal Poverty Level

The minimum yearly income that a person or family needs in order to provide for its basic needs. The Department of Health and Human Services calculates the Federal Povery Level and publishes it each February. The actual dollar amount varies according to family size. Different agencies of the U.S. Government use the FPL in determining eligibility for certain programs, notably TANF and Medicaid.
