    Washington sends $1 food stamp checks to 250,000

    Washington sends $1 food stamp checks to 250,000

    Washington sends $1 food stamp checks to 250,000 - Washington State | Tri-City Herald : Mid-Columbia news

    OLYMPIA, Wash. The state of Washington sent out $1 checks to the 250,000 food stamp recipients in the state.

    The director of the Community Services Division for the Department of Social and Health Services, Leo Ribas, says the checks mailed Feb. 17 trigger an additional $43 million in federal food benefits. They also connect recipients to an energy assistance program.



    Why? What is the purpose of sending someone essentially a dollar. How much did it cost them to do this.

    The link does not work.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    What the hell do they mean when they say that 250,000 checks valued at $1 a piece will "trigger an additional $43 million in federal food benefits." Obviously it isn't providing the millions of dollars, so why are $1 checks required to 'trigger' them?

    I imagine it's some type of matching qualifier. If you received aid for your electric bill then that qualifies you for federal aid. So the $1 from the state qualifies you for an extra $30 from the federal gov.

    OLYMPIA, Wash.

    The state of Washington sent out $1 checks to the 250,000 food stamp recipients in the state.

    The director of the Community Services Division for the Department of Social and Health Services, Leo Ribas, says the checks mailed Feb. 17 trigger an additional $43 million in federal food benefits. They also connect recipients to an energy assistance program.

    Ribas says the $1 check is a one-time move to leverage the federal money. He says next year the state will be able to trigger the federal assistance through a routine deposit in food stamp accounts.

    It's similar to how most social programs work. Single women get more money so don't get married. You might qualify for help on your mortgage - but only if you are behind on payments so quit paying. You might qualify for a certain amount of college aid but only if you don't have savings - so don't save! States that needed to give X amount of dollars in state aid qualify for x amount of dollars in federal aid. So if you didn't have to give that amount just give it anyway to qualify for getting some more.

    Just more assbackwardness. Same 'ol crap.

    If the State of Washington took over the beer industry there, they would not be able to manufacture it for less than 100 bucks a six pack.
