VIP's Income Guidelines

Use this page to see if you qualify for the Tangled Title Fund or for free legal assistance as a small business.

VIP uses two different thresholds to determine eligibility for certain services: 200% and 300% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG).

If you’re an individual 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.

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.

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.

 

*Please note that we will be evaluating your household’s gross income (line 6 on the federal tax return), not the adjusted gross income.
