Client Restrictions

Client eligibility is clearly defined in each of GLS’s grants. Most specify that our clients must earn under 250% of the federal poverty level. Some specify even lower levels (200% FPL or below) except for agency VOCA funding which provides services for all victims of crime, regardless of income and funding for clients aged 60+.

As a grant funded organization, we MUST have proof of income to accept clients.
