VIP's Income Guidelines

See if you qualify for the Tangled Title Fund, legal help as a small business, or other services.

VIP uses two different thresholds to determine eligibility for certain services: 200% and 300% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG). We evaluate your household’s gross income (line 6 on federal tax returns), not adjusted gross income.

If you’re applying to the Tangled Title Fund (TTF), note that the TTF Committee gives priority to applicants whose household income does not exceed 200% of the FPG (second column above).

If you’re a small business owner looking to apply for full representation by a volunteer attorney, your household income must not exceed 300% 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.
