Undated -- There are several requirements that need to be met for a family to be eligible for food stamps.
Households need to have two or three thousand dollars in countable resources. Households must also meet gross and net income tests. The amount allotted to the household varies and depends on several factors. Adults must register for work, accept employment, or take part in an employment training program.
