  • It goes by monthly. And your bill amounts and lots of other things.

  • You might be able to google it and see what the amounts are/what it takes to qualify.

  • Depends on what you make, what your bills are and how many people are in your family. You should have a state website telling you what it is.

  • They don't take bills into consideration. It's strictly what you make. My friend made less than 27k and was denied. Not sure what the rules are in Az. Good luck!

  • Here in CA you have to make less than $2,700 gross/monthly. to qualify. You need to check the website chart for income and family size.

  • They list each state and a site for that state

  • It goes by your family size I would just call and find out. You have nothing to loose by asking.
