The process for applying for SNAP benefits is already wrought with challenges. For example, Income status. The amount of money a household can receive and still be eligible to receive SNAP benefits depends on household size. Money from wages or other payments to any household member is counted as income. Your household may qualify for deductions from the household’s income, such as rent, utilities, legally obligated child support paid to someone outside the household and babysitting expenses. If your household includes older or disabled members, you may be able to deduct medical costs. This is one major key question the Department of Human Services ask when applying to this program, but what about those who can no work and have to depend on someone else to assistant them? Do we deny them assistance or find a way around it? It seems like you are already doing so! Just STOP! Another issue is depending on what neighborhood you are from will determine who gets help or not. Not only is it a huge concern but is discriminating towards those of color. It seems that people of color have it harder then other races but why? Can someone answer this for me? If you feel that a person is not doing what is right when coming to the program then make changes in providing verifications by a every two week period a social works comes to a person home to check in and make sure that all is well and that they are trying to do better then what they have done before. Don’t block them because of race but hold people accountable for their actions. In order to help a person who is in need of food and resources it all starts with respect and care for each other not a “I can do what I want and push a button and you either get the help or not. You want to cut all benefits off without a care in the world, but at what cost? More increase homelessness and increase of poor healthcare?. These type of programs help those who are truly in need and taking this away can cause even more serious problems down the line. I say no to this crap butt Regulation! Keep this assistance for those who really need this. There is ALWAYS A BETTER WAY TO HANDLE SITUATIONS SUCH AS THIS ONE!
