Woodstock
comment letter submitted in support of the Illinois Department of Human
Services proposed elimination of the asset test for the Food Stamp program. The proposed change would adopt the categorical eligibility rule and eliminate
the asset test, allowing more Illinois individuals and families to qualify for
federally-funded Food Stamp benefits. In addition, Illinois residents would be
encouraged to build savings and assets that would assist them in maintaining
self-sufficiency.
