Not possible at this time to make enough money to live on from prize money. Most of the professional players that make a living a paintball not only play for top teams, but work for the companies that sponsor their team.

My guess is it's the total $ amount that will be paid out in that division across all the teams that win a prize. However, if I'm right, someone needs to work on their proof reading / math skills over at NPPL.
