This Management Bulletin (MB) announces the publication of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), Income Guidelines (IG) for 2013, effective March 18, 2013.

Determining Eligibility of Individuals Applying for Commodity Supplemental Food Program

The CSFP 2013 IGs are used by Local Agencies (LA) to determine the eligibility of individuals applying to participate in the CSFP. The guidelines should be used in conjunction with Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations (7 CFR), Part 247. The guidelines 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 Income Guidelines published annually by the 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, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, 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 Income Guidelines in order to be eligible for the program.

The CSFP IGs for 2013 provided below must be implemented immediately and will remain in effect until notification of the IGs for 2014.
