Phil Arellano

What's the current poverty ceiling for annual income ($$) in our region?
Phil Arellano
01:32:18
@Rose Patzer - I'll see if Erin has a poverty threshold number specific to the SW area. I see 26,200 for a family of four nationally 2020. Here are a couple tools to find poverty thresholds by county and by family size: https://livingwage.mit.edu/states/https://www.payingforseniorcare.com/federal-poverty-level#48-Contiguous-States-and-D.C.27/locations
