TIP:  Family sizes in excess of 8 persons are calculated by adding 8% of the four-person income limit for each additional family member.  That is, a 9-person limit should be 140% of the 4-person limit, the 10-person limit should be 148%.  The income limit values for large households (9-12 persons) must be rounded to the nearest $50.  Therefore, all values from 1 to 24 are rounded down to zero and all values from 25 to 49 are rounded up to 50.
