FYI for those who applied for food stamps

I work with a lady that works in my state office and she told me that food stamp benefits EVERYWHERE and forgive me if she only meant my state, but i believe she meant all over are increasing the gross income allowance amount. Instead of 130% of the poverty level its at 200%....So for my family size for instance I can now make 1,200 dollars more a month and still qualify! IDK how many people applied in need and got turned away for being 20-30 bucks over! But if your still in need try again now! The charts in my county have yet to be updated, but you could call your local office and see if the change will affect you!! Best of luck to those who need it. HOpe this helps someone!!! XOXO
