Updated EAJA Rates Issued

Empire Justice Center July 31, 2018

Gene Doyle of POOR recently updated his invaluable EJA rate charts with the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Consumer Price Index (CPI) data for June 2018.  Gene includes three charts for:


  • New York-Newark-Jersey City, NY-NJ-PA
  • Northeast, and
  • U.S. City Average.


Gene noted that the BLS has replaced the former “New York – Northern N.J. – Long Island, NY-NJ-CT” Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) with the “New York-Newark-Jersey City, NY-NJ-PA” Core Based Statistical Area (CBSA).  This change affects the following New York counties: Bronx, Dutchess, Kings, Nassau, New York, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, Rockland, Suffolk, and Westchester.


The July 2018 CPI data will be released on August 10, 2018.  Thanks to Gene for keeping us up-to-date on these important EJA rate changes
