Section 1611.3(c) of the Corporation’s regulations establishes a maximum income level equivalent to one hundred and twenty-five percent (125%) of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Since 1982, the Department of Health and Human Services has been responsible for updating and issuing the Federal Poverty Guidelines. The figures for 2010 set out below are equivalent to 125% of the current Federal Poverty Guidelines as published on August 3, 2010 (75 FR 45628). In addition, LSC is publishing charts listing income levels that are 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. These charts are for reference purposes only as an aid to grant recipients in assessing the financial eligibility of an applicant whose income is greater than 200% of the applicable Federal Poverty Guidelines amount, but less than 200% of the applicable Federal Poverty Guidelines amount (and who may be found to be financially eligible under duly adopted exceptions to the annual income ceiling in accordance with sections 1611.3, 1611.4 and 1611.5). LSC notes that these 2010 Income Guidelines are substantively unchanged from the 2009 Income Guidelines. This is because HHS’ Poverty Guidelines for the remainder of 2010 are unchanged from the 2009 Poverty Guidelines which have been in place since last year.

45 CFR Part 1611


Income Level for Individuals Eligible for Assistance

AGENCY: Legal Services Corporation.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Legal Services Corporation (``Corporation'') is required 
by law to establish maximum income levels for individuals eligible for 
legal assistance. This document updates the specified income levels to 
reflect the annual amendments to the Federal Poverty Guidelines as 
issued by the Department of Health and Human Services.

DATES: Effective Date: This rule is effective as of January 26, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mattie Cohan, Senior Assistant General 
Counsel, Legal Services Corporation, 3333 K St., NW., Washington, DC 
20007; (202) 295-1624; mcohan@lsc.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 1007(a)(2) of the Legal Services 
Corporation Act (``Act''), 42 U.S.C. 2996f(a)(2), requires the 
Corporation to establish maximum income levels for individuals eligible 
for legal assistance, and the Act provides that other specified factors 
shall be taken into account along with income.
    Section 1611.3(c) of the Corporation's regulations establishes a 
maximum income level equivalent to one hundred and twenty-five percent 
(125%) of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Since 1982, the Department of 
Health and Human Services has been responsible for updating and issuing 
the Federal Poverty Guidelines. The figures for 2010 set out below are 
equivalent to 125% of the current Federal Poverty Guidelines as 
published on August 3, 2010 (75 FR 45628).
    In addition, LSC is publishing charts listing income levels that 
are 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. These charts are for 
reference purposes only as an aid to grant recipients in assessing the 
financial eligibility of an applicant whose income is greater than 200% 
of the applicable Federal Poverty Guidelines amount, but less than 200% 
of the applicable Federal Poverty Guidelines amount (and who may be 
found to be financially eligible under duly adopted exceptions to the 
annual income ceiling in accordance with sections 1611.3, 1611.4 and 
1611.5).
    LSC notes that these 2010 Income Guidelines are substantively 
unchanged from the 2009 Income Guidelines. This is because HHS' Poverty 
Guidelines for the remainder of 2010 are unchanged from the 2009 
Poverty Guidelines which have been in place since last year.
