VIP's Income Guidelines

See if your income qualifies you for our services.

VIP uses two different thresholds to determine eligibility for certain services: 200% and 400% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG). We evaluate your household’s gross income (line 6 on federal tax returns), not adjusted gross income.

2 people$36,620 per year$73,240 per year

6 people$74,380 per year$148,760 per year

If you’re a small business owner looking to apply for full representation by a volunteer attorney, your household income must not exceed 400% of the FPG (third column above).

If you’re a nonprofit leader, please see the eligibility criteria on the Nonprofits page.

If you’re looking for legal help for yourself or your family, the process of getting help is slightly different. Please see the Get Legal Help page for details.
