GBLS Income Eligibility Guidelines - 2018

GBLS guidelines allow us to accept clients earning up to 125% of the federal poverty level. For some types of cases, we can accept clients earning up to 200% of the federal poverty level. Elder recipients and victims of crime/survivors of homicide victims served by CLAVC are not subject to the income guidelines. Medicare beneficiaries are not subject to GBLS income guidelines when seeking assistance with Medicare issues. If you are a victim of a crime who is seeking legal services because of the results of that crime, no income restrictions apply.
