I'm kind of embarassed to ask this question but, my husband and I have two small children to feed, and we're having a tough time keeping up with bills, and groceries. Of course, we're choosing groceries over bills, we make sure our babies are fed. My question is, and please no bashing, do they count the BAH as income for food stamps, or the SNAP program as its called now? We don't want to be on them, but we're struggling right now. Thanks for your answers.Answer Question

"If a family lives on an installation, housing will not be counted as income when computing eligibility. If a family receives basic allowance for housing (BAH), that will be included as income when computing eligibility."
The way I interpret the quote above is that if it shows up on the paystub it gross income and if not then it's not counted as income.
