Many, but not all, use the income guidelines set by the Maryland Legal Services Corporation, which are based on median Maryland income and posted here for reference. At present, all of PBRC’s legal clinics are available regardless of income. If you are seeking legal help through another program, be sure to confirm your income eligibility directly with that program.
