New policy set for food stamp eligibility in Michigan
MICHIGAN--A new policy is set to take effect concerning Michigan’s welfare benefits.
Eligibility rules are changing. For the past decade, Michigan has determined food assistance eligibility based only on income, but now certain financial assets could get you booted from the program.
For instance, if you have more than 5,000 dollars in the bank or own certain types of property you will not be eligible for the program.
