Updates/Periodic Review

Compensation amounts for community members are based on various considerations that are impacted by inflation, cost of living, and self-sufficiency standards that are ever-changing and will necessitate ongoing review of these guidelines over time.

The Office of Equity will update the definition of “low income” annually to ensure compliance with the most current federal poverty guidelines.

The Office of Equity will also conduct a more substantive review every three years as new Self-Sufficiency Standard reports are published by the UW, beginning in Fall of 2023. and will solicit stakeholder and community input during this process. The Office of Equity will create and oversee a system for receiving and incorporating feedback into this document.
