How much does it take to get by in your community?

The National Poverty Plan Standards (NPPS™) consider local costs of living and more accurately capture economic need than the federal poverty line. The standards are based on 50% of local median income, adjusted for household size.

Mapping the Need

Using NPPS™, we estimate that more than 75 million people in the United States are not able to live for a sustained period of time without assistance. In contrast, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that 34 million Americans live under the official poverty line.
