Can part-time workers qualify?

Answer

Yes, part-time workers qualify, as long as their income meets the required income limit.

When calculating income, your qualification depends on the entire household's income, just not your own. For example, if you only work part-time, but live with someone who works full-time, your combined income must fall under the income limit for a two-person household.
