The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of the bosses and their employers, the special interests. An invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy. ~Woodrow Wilson

The federal poverty guidelines are used for administrative purposes (usually for determining eligiblity) by a number of federal programs. For example, Head Start and the Food Stamp Program use them in determining eligibility. The guidelines are issued by the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) and published in the Federal Register. (The guidelines are a simplified version of the federal government's statistical poverty thresholds used by the Bureau of the Census to prepare its statistical estimates of the number of persons and families in poverty.)
