BOISE, Idaho – Idaho has slightly raised the income limits for people who qualify for a food aid program to ensure that pregnant women and children have adequate nutrition.
The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare announced Wednesday that the new income guidelines for the state’s special nutrition program for women, infants and children will take effect July 1.
The change raises income limits by about $ 450 a year.
Under the new guidelines, a family of three can earn up to $ 40,600 a year and still be eligible for benefits. Under the old guidelines, the same family could have made up to nearly $ 40,200 a year.
