Poverty Guidelines

The Circles initiative strives to raise each family at least 200% of the
Federal Poverty Guidelines.
                • For a family of 4, the family’s total yearly gross wage earnings would be $49,200 in 2017.
                • This means a single mom with three children would be working to bring home a gross income of $49,200 per year.
                • For a two parent household with two children, the adults would need to earn yearly $24,600 each gross or some other combination to bring their combined income to 200% FPG.
                     Circles empowers families to move into mid-skill jobs to increase household income
provides employment support to promote job success.
