Feb. 7, 2014—The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released updates of the poverty guidelines which are used as an eligibility criterion by the Community Services Block Grant program and a number of other federal programs. The poverty guidelines are derived from the Census Bureau’s current official poverty threshold, and the figures reflect annual income.
