Subject: Commodity Supplemental Food Program Income Guidelines for 2014


This Management Bulletin (MB) announces the publication of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Nutrition Service, Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) Income Guidelines (IG) for 2014, effective March 10, 2014, which can be downloaded as a Portable Document Format file from the USDA’s Web site at http://www.fns.usda.gov/sites/default/files/CSFP_2014_Income_Guidelines.pdf.

Determining Eligibility of Individuals Applying for the Commodity Supplemental Food Program

The CSFP 2014 IGs are used by local agencies (LA) to determine the eligibility of individuals applying to participate in the CSFP. The IGs should be used in conjunction with Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations (7 CFR), Part 247. The IGs contain the maximum income limits by household size used to determine eligibility for the CSFP.

As established by 7 CFR, Section 247.9(b)(1), household income limits for women, infants, and children must be at or below 185 percent of the Federal Poverty IGs published annually by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This section further requires that LAs consider certain women, infants, and children as income-eligible, regardless of actual income, if they receive CalFresh benefits, California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids, or Medicaid benefits.

Per 7 CFR, Section 247.9(c), elderly persons are required to have a household income at or below 130 percent of the Federal Poverty IGs in order to be eligible for the program.

The CSFP IGs for 2014 provided below must be implemented immediately and will remain in effect until notification of the IGs for 2015.

Please note: Due to recent changes to CSFP eligibility from the Agricultural Act of 2014 (Public Law 113-79), also referred to as the Farm Bill, the following IGs for women, infants, and children should be used only to recertify for CSFP eligibility.
