Food Stamp Table of Contents

1240-1-4-.27(b)

The net monthly income standard is used to determine whether a household is eligible. It is not used to determine the actual amount of the coupon allotment. This standard applies to all households.

 

1.   If a household’s available income (after exclusions and deductions) exceeds the net monthly income standard for the number of persons in the household, a household is not eligible for food stamps.

 

2.   If a household’s available income (after exclusions and deductions) equals or is less than the appropriate net monthly income standard for the number of persons in the household, the household is eligible for a food stamp allotment.
