The Federal Poverty Guidelines are issued each year in the Federal Register by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The guidelines are a simplification of the poverty thresholds for use for administrative purposes — for instance, determining financial eligibility for certain federal programs. The poverty guidelines are sometimes loosely referred to as the “federal poverty level” (FPL). View current guidelines.

The Livingston County Community Foundation has announced a grant in the amount of $8,000 to the Community Action Partnership of North Central Missouri.
The funds are to be used to purchase medical supplies for clinic visits at their Chillicothe location on Elm Street which specializes in women’s healthcare, STD testing and treatment, and other services including breast and reproductive exams and family planning education for Livingston county residents. They also provide laboratory services such as blood pressure checks, hemoglobin tests, and urinalysis, as well as limited services to men related to STD screenings and reproductive health.
The Livingston County Community Foundation was organized in 1998 as a recommendation of the Long Range Planning Committee of the Chillicothe Chamber of Commerce to set up a permanent endowment to grant funds to other Livingston County non-profit (501 c3) organizations to fulfill their objectives. The major areas of interest are Economic Development, Community and Rural Development, Education, Community Health and Welfare, Youth, Arts, and Humanities. Since its organization the foundation has made over 80 grants totaling more than $500,000, all benefiting non-profits in Livingston County.
To obtain more information about the Livingston County Community Foundation contact Ron Wilder at 660-646-0502, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or write to PO Box 405 in Chillicothe.

As part of its on-going mission to lessen poverty across Missouri, Community Action Partnership of North Central Missouri is currently conducting a Community Needs Assessment. The purpose of this assessment is to help the Agency better understand the current state of poverty within their nine county service area. The information gleaned from this process will help CAPNCM improve current anti-poverty efforts and help them build future programs designed to target the biggest problem areas facing the residents of Caldwell, Daviess, Grundy, Harrison, Linn, Livingston, Mercer, Putnam, and Sullivan counties.
CAPNCM would like to invite all members of the community to participate by taking a brief online survey regarding their thoughts and views on poverty in their area. Respondents are free to complete as much, or as little, of the survey as they wish. No personally identifying information is collected as part of the survey or used in any part of the final report produced by the Community Action Agency.
