  1. Annual gross income from all income sources @ 200% of the OMB Poverty guidelines for each family size, and
  2. Whether the applicant has received cash assistance payments under Title IV of XVI of the Social Security Act during the preceding twelve months.
  3. Note that these are the basics of eligibility. Other criteria and requirements may apply or determine waitlist placement.
