2010 Poverty Guidelines will not be revised until at least March 1, 2010

August 2nd Revision: The 2010 Poverty Guidelines will be published in the Federal Register on August 3, 2010. Finally! Click here to see the Poverty Guidelines for the Remainder of 2010.


According to the Department of Health and Human Services website, the 2009 Poverty Guidelines will remain in effect until at least March 1, 2010. This data has recently been revised to May 31, 2010.

The reason for the freeze is that for the first time since the poverty guidelines were issued in 1965, the annual average Consumer Price Index has decreased from the previous year.  If the 2009 guidelines weren’t frozen, the HHS would have had to issue 2010 poverty guidelines that were lower than the 2009 poverty guidelines.
