How Much Do Services Cost?
There is no fee for the services that we provide. However, people who can afford to do so will be asked to pay for part of some purchased services. This is called Consumer Financial Participation.
Who Has to Pay?
We will ask you to pay for all or part of some things if your gross family income is above a level called the Consumer Financial Participation (CFP) threshold. The threshold changes depending on the size of your family.
We count your income and the income of your spouse. We count your parents’ income if:
- You are under 18, or
- Your parents claimed you on their income tax form, or
- A school you plan to attend says you are a dependent for financial aid purposes
