Once basic Food Stamp eligibility is understood advocates should know the nuances of the Food Stamp budgeting process. This workshop focuses on budgeting for various household circumstances and how to determine the correct benefit amount. You will learn about special budgeting procedures for households with elderly, disabled, immigrant, and the homeless and how to best assist these clients. Also covered are retroactive Food Stamps when accepted for SSI benefits and budgeting when in receipt of a housing subsidy such as FEPS.
Note: Knowledge of Food Stamps eligibility and application is required.
Cost of workshop is $50.00. Online registration required: http://benefitsplus.cssny.org/home/training
