  • I believe that all depends on what state you are living in.And 2,everybody is different.It depends on alot of things.Go to your nearest DHS office and talk with them.They'll give you the proper forms to fill out and let you know if you qualify or not.

  • It is based on how many ppl are in the home, what your housing costs/bills cost each month, and how much money you make. so it differs.

  • i applied just to see when we were struggling really hard and they told me that we qualify for food stamps but that we qualify for 0$.....although the qualification got my daughter on the free meal program at school. so it helped a little.
