* These standards are based upon the federal poverty guidelines, as published each year by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  Under Title 5 of the California Code of  Regulations, the student or student's family must have a total income in the prior year (in this case, 2012) that is equal to or less than 150% of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Poverty Guidelines based on family size.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published the 2012 Poverty Guidelines in January 2012 (Federal Register, Vol. 77, No. 17, January 26, 2012, pp. 4034-4035). 

These income standards are for the 2013-2014 academic year and are to be used to determine BOGFW-B eligibility effective July 1, 2013.
