Federal Poverty Guidelines

The following outlines the Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2022. Wisconsin Judicare typically can only accept clients whose household income is at or below 125% FPL (Federal Poverty Level). However there are many factors that contribute to the calculation of household income and eligibility, so please apply even if you may be above these guidelines.

Income guidelines for specific case types or projects vary. For example, our Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic accepts clients with income up to 250% FPL. Our Victims' Rights Project does not have any income limits for eligibility. In addition, some enrolled Native American tribal members may have higher incomes. If you are in need of legal services, you should apply for services to see if you may be eligible, regardless of income.
