PA Eases Food Stamp Requirements

lacka food stamps access

The state is easing up on the guidelines of an asset test it wants to impose on people who use food stamps.

Pennsylvania now wants to set a limit of $5,500 for regular households and $9,000 for households with a disabled or older person.

The previous plan that came out last month set the asset test at limits of no more than $2,000 for regular households.

Critics argued the limits were too restrictive.
