State Median Income and Federal Poverty Guidelines Calculation Tool
Updated: July 2022 (to include state median income estimates for FY 2023).
These are instructions for the State Median Income (SMI) and Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG) Calculation Tool. This tool can assist in calculating the annual and monthly SMI estimates and FPGs. These determine income eligibility and family co-payments for child care subsidy programs. The tool contains five Excel worksheets 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 [email protected]. NCSIA can also provide the tools for previous years upon request.
