A family size greater than one person refers to persons related by birth, marriage, or adoption who live together; all such related persons are considered members of one family. In addition, included family member(s) must be claimed as dependents on federal income taxes for the most recent filed return. Information to support inclusion of family members will be requested when completing the Financial Assistance application.
