SRS Official Defends Food Stamp Eligibility Change


A Kansas social services official today (MON) defended a policy that has effectively made hundreds of children ineligible for food stamps. The Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services recently changed how household income is calculated for the program. Michelle Schroeder, public policy director for SRS, says the old policy favored households that include illegal immigrants.

Illegal immigrants are not eligible for food stamps, but their children, who are sometimes U-S citizens, can be eligible.
