Federal Poverty Guidelines for the Remainder of 2010

Bottom Line

The 2010 federal poverty guidelines are exactly the same as the 2009 federal poverty guidelines.

The Messy Details

After a long delay, the US Department of Health & Human Services will be publishing the 2010 federal poverty guidelines on August 3, 2010 in the Federal Register [Revision: here’s a link to the Federal Register publication.]

Recent legislation delayed the publication of revised 2010 poverty guidelines (see this post about when HHS poverty guidelines have historically been released). The reason for the delay was that for the first time since the poverty guidelines were issued in 1965, the annual average Consumer Price Index actually decreased from the previous year.  Therefore, 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 according to the procedure for updating poverty guidelines.

However, legislation to further delay the publication of the 2010 poverty guidelines did not pass. So, the procedure for updating poverty guidelines was changed, and the 2010 federal poverty guidelines are now exactly the same as the 2009 federal poverty guidelines.
