I got a little ticked off when it came to reduced lunch paperwork. I just don't see how this should be different. Not that we qualify anyway but, I was reading the military clause on it. It states: If you get an off-base housing allowance, it must be included as income. However, if your housing is part of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative, do not include your housing allowance income! This is bs. Housing is very seldom available on post, you are lucky if you get it in a lot of areas. Not only that everything is paid for: rent, heat, water, electric (yes, I know this might change or has changed in some areas, but still not what the cost of off post is). If you are off post, your housing allowance very seldom covers everything, you end up paying "out of pocket" unless you live in a complete shit hole. So pretty much if you take two military families and make them exactly the same, one will qualify for assistance because they live on post, and the other will not because they receive an allowance. I have always found this completely stupid!!!! I feel like it is punishing the people that live off post. Where I am right now we don't even have the option of housing!
