Yes, there are income and asset limits for FAP. FAP eligibility is based on household size, monthly household income, and assets. Households includes all the people who purchase and prepare meals together. Children under age 22 who live at home are part of their parents’ household.
Family income can be up to 200% of the poverty level, depending on expenses. Certain expenses are taken into account, such as child support payments or medical expenses for disabled and elderly family members.
A family must also have less than $5,000 dollars in countable assets to be eligible for FAP. Some assets don’t count for your asset test, such as your home and your vehicles (up to $15,000 fair market value).
If your entire household is already eligible for the Family Independence Program (FIP), State Disability Assistance (SDA), or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), you are exempt from the asset test.
