ETA Publishes Lower Living Standard Income Level Tables for 2014
Mar 27, 2014
Title I of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) requires the U.S. Secretary of Labor to update and publish the Lower Living Standard Income Levels (LLSIL) tables annually, for uses described in the law (including determining eligibility for youth programs). WIA defines "low income individual" to include individuals who received income during a six-month period that does not exceed the higher level of the poverty line or 70 percent of the LLSIL.

The Employment and Training Administration has published the LLSIL tables in the March 27, 2014 FEDERAL REGISTER.
