How to Calculate Annual Income
Each household member’s income is calculated based on their gross (before taxes) salary or gross regular hourly wage. We do not consider bonuses or overtime, as they may not be consistent sources of income. Each hourly wage is multiplied by 2080 hours (full-time working hours per year) which equals gross annual employment income. Part-time gross wages (less than 40 hours/week) are calculated according to average hours worked on a weekly basis. Any additional income received by the household on a regular basis – such as child support, disability, or other government payments – must be added to the recipient’s wages to calculate total household gross income.
All applicants will be considered for assistance without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, age, handicap, disability, sexual orientation, ancestry, national origin, marital status, or any other basis prohibited by applicable law.
