Others are disabled residents in need of housing assistance, some need help with appealing food stamp applications or applying for Medicaid, Medicare, or SSI. Our screening process is designed to prioritize clients whose problems are life-altering or threatening.

I had came to Legal Aid before, I've called and reached out to several people saying it's something going on with my child. Without evidence nobody could do anything, now look my child is in foster home, the dad in jail. I've did my services my child is not home, I have an appointed lawyer but we do not talk, her and the caseworker chats

Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2021

Persons In Family Household Poverty Guideline
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
1 $12,760
2 $17,240
3 $21,720
4 $26,200

*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get legal aid from some offices, they use a sliding fee scale. When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
