 Households that are 200% or below of the 2013 poverty income guidelines

 are eligible for assistance.  Households that have received income from the

 Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program or Supplemental Security

 Income (SSI) a maximum of 12 months prior to weatherization are automatically

 eligible, regardless of income. 

 

DEFINITION OF INCOME

 

 Refers to total annual cash receipts before taxes from all sources, with the

 exceptions noted below.  Income data for a part of a year may be annualized in

 order to determine eligibility—for example, by multiplying by four the amount of

 income received during the most recent three months. 

 

 Income includes:  money, wages and salaries before any deductions; net receipts

 from non-farm or farm self-employment (receipts from a person’s own business or

 from an owned or rented farm after deductions for business or farm expenses). 

 Income also includes regular payments from social security, railroad retirement,

 unemployment compensation, strike benefits from union funds, worker’s

 compensation, veteran’s payments, training stipends, alimony, and military family

 allotments; private pensions, government employee pensions (including military

 retirement pay), and regular insurance or annuity payments; dividends, interest,

 net rental income, net royalties, periodic receipts from estates or trusts, and net

 gambling or lottery winnings.

 

 Income excludes capital gains; any assets drawn down as withdrawals from a

 bank, the sale of property, a house, or a car; one-time payments from a welfare

 agency to a family or person who is in temporary financial difficulty; tax refunds,

 gifts, loans, lump-sum inheritances, one-time insurance payments, or compensation

 for injury.  Income also excludes non-cash benefits, such as the employer-paid

 or union-paid portion of health insurance or other employee fringe benefits, food or

 housing received in lieu of wages, the value of food and fuel produced and

 consumed on farms, the imputed value of rent from owner-occupied non-farm or

farm housing, and such Federal non-cash benefit programs as Medicare, Medicaid,

 Food Stamps, school lunches, housing assistance and combat zone pay to the

 military.  Note:  Child Support Payments and College Scholarships are

 excluded.
