Income Deductions

The following are deductions we will subtract from your gross monthly income (if applicable) to determine if you qualify for the AIM Program. Child care and disabled dependent care expenses will be deducted (up to the maximum allowed) if the pregnant woman and the husband/father of the baby are working or in job-training and are not at home to provide care. You must submit the appropriate documentation for each deduction.
