NACPA’s annual estimate of the "living wage" i.e., the minimum pay rate necessary for adult workers to maintain a basic living standard.
As indicated in the Church Pay Manual, our estimate is based on the eligibility cutoff for the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP - the national ‘food stamp’ program) for a family of three (income 130% above the federal poverty guideline).
This estimate of the Living Wage assumes employees also receive health insurance and other benefits (as is the practice with many living wage initiatives around the country). The 2020 national figures shown are effective for the federal FY2019 which began October 1, 2019.
The National Association of Church Personnel Administrators (NACPA) promotes leadership in human resources, finance and administration that models Gospel values, promoting justice in the workplace.
To accomplish our mission we promote comprehensive church personnel systems which integrate Catholic social teaching and sound management principles; strengthen working relationships among Church leaders, ministers and employees; develop church personnel and human resource skills and competence and commit to excellence through Gospel values.
