3 Maryland at a Glance Maryland s status as the wealthiest state in the country disguises that fact that at least one in every 10 of our neighbors are struggling to make ends meet. Almost 575,000 Marylanders live below the federal poverty line, which amounts to less than $23,850 per year for a family of four. Nearly half of Marylanders in poverty are trying to get by on far less, under $5,835 per year for an individual, which the federal government classifies as deep poverty. Although we have recently seen some positive signs in the state s economy, the benefits have not been widely shared. There are still just as many Marylanders who aren t earning enough to meet their basic needs as there were in 2011, while the people who already had the most money have seen their share of the pie grow. It is clear that we need to do more to ensure that everyone in our state has the opportunity to build a secure future for themselves and their families. Maryland Poverty Profiles is a compilation of key indicators that reflect the daily challenges of these thousands of families in Maryland and each of its 24 local jurisdictions. The Maryland Alliance for the Poor (MAP) hopes that this data will launch a conversation about how we can take collective action to ensure that everyone in our state is able to have a roof over their heads, sufficient food on the table and the opportunity to thrive. While there is still much work to be done, the Maryland Poverty Profiles also show how state programs and policies like cash assistance, housing assistance, nutrition assistance and child care vouchers are essential tools that help people meet their basic needs. The chart below depicts various income levels across Maryland. As you can see, even with Maryland s higher minimum wage that took effect in July, a family of three with one person working full time at the minimum wage will still be living below the Federal Poverty Line unless they receive additional supports, like nutrition assistance payments. In order to afford the typical market rate rent for a two-bedroom apartment in Maryland, a household would have to earn far more than that, just over $50,000 per year. Unfortunately, many of the programs that help hardworking families afford adequate housing have long waiting lists. Cash assistance programs (TCA and TDAP) do help some of the lowest-income families get by, but the amount of assistance available remains far below the poverty line, and even farther below the Maryland Minimum Living Level. MAP believes our state can do better, and strongly supports efforts to address the state s many unmet needs. With rising incomes and a growing economy, now is the time to invest in the success of all Marylanders.
