The 2021 Poverty Guidelines have been released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. These guidelines, in effect as of January 13, 2021, are updated every year to account for last calendar year's increase in prices as measured by the Consumer Price Index. The Poverty Guidelines are used to determine financial eligibility for certain federal programs, including Head Start and Early Head Start.
