To obtain information to assist MLAC in the design and implementation
of its program, a representative state and area sample of 1,800
eligible households and 200 other low-income households in the state of
Massachusetts were interviewed by telephone. Eligible households were
defined as households with income up to 125% of the HHS poverty
guidelines based on household size. Residents in these households are
automatically eligible to receive legal aid. “Other low-income
households,” with incomes between 125% and 184% of the Federal poverty
guidelines are eligible for legal aid under certain circumstances.
