The following are the Income Eligibility Guidelines to be effective from July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019. The Department's guidelines for free meals and milk and reduced price meals were obtained by multiplying the year 2018 Federal income poverty guidelines by 1.30 and 1.85, respectively, and by rounding the result upward to the next whole dollar.
