Federal Poverty Line (FPL) - Overview

The Federal Poverty Line (FPL) is the set minimum amount of gross income that a family needs for food, clothing, transportation, shelter and other necessities. In the United States, this level is determined by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The FPL varies according to household size, and the number is adjusted for inflation and updated annually.
