      For example, one-person household income at, or below $94,220 would qualify.  Another example, household of four, income at, or below $134,600 would qualify to participate. See full table below for more details.

      Understanding potential tax implications:

      For stipends exceeding $600/year, the City of Issaquah has a legal obligation to issue a 1099 IRS form for non-employment income. Stipend recipients may have to pay federal income tax on the value of the assistance received. The stipend may also affect eligibility criteria for other federal financial assistance programs, including housing assistance, cash assistance, or federal childcare programs. Please consult a tax advisor for specific information pertaining to your individual situation. A list of organizations providing free financial consultation may be found here.
