State Median Income and Federal Poverty Level Calculation Tool

Updated: August 2020 (to include the LIHEAP State Medium Income estimates for FFY 2021)

These are instructions for the State Median Income (SMI) and Federal Poverty Level (FPL) Calculation Tool. This tool can assist in calculating the annual and monthly SMI estimates and FPLs. These determine income eligibility and family co-payments for child care subsidy programs. The tool contains four Excel worksheets or tabs that calculate the SMI levels in increments from 5 percent to 100 percent.

A Microsoft Excel spreadsheet accompanies these instructions. The file is available by emailing the National Center on Subsidy Innovation and Accountability at ncsia@ecetta.info. NCSIA can also provide the tools for previous years upon request.
