  • My answer is yes, it's a form of government aide meaning welfare!

  • They are both public assistance. Is that what you are asking?
    There are different aspects of PA. The Food Stamp program is just one of them.

  • It's a government aid program for the needy, but it's separate from the cash assistance often referred to as welfare.

  • Yep. It's assistance from the government, just not cash aid.

  • IMO, No.
    It's not cash assistance.

  • You didn't earn it. Therefore it's welfare.

    Answer by PartyGalAnne at 11:53 PM on Sep. 18, 2013

  • Yes, I agree with most of the others. It's public assistance, and welfare is just the older name for public assistance.
