Nonprofit to for-profit conversions by hospitals, health insurers, and health plans. (1/200)

Conversion of hospitals, health insurers, and health plans from nonprofit to for-profit ownership has become a focus of national debate. The author examines why nonprofit ownership has been dominant in the US health system and assesses the strength of the argument that nonprofits provide community benefits that would be threatened by for-profit conversion. The author concludes that many of the specific community benefits offered by nonprofits, such as care for the poor, could be maintained or replaced by adequate funding of public programs and that quality and fairness in treatment can be better assured through clear standards of care and adequate monitoring systems. As health care becomes increasingly commercialized, the most difficult parts of nonprofits' historic mission to preserve are the community orientation, leadership role, and innovation that nonprofit hospitals and health plans have provided out of their commitment to a community beyond those to whom they sell services.  (+info)

Human rights is a US problem, too: the case of women and HIV. (2/200)

Overall, US AIDS incidence and mortality have shown significant declines since 1996, probably because of new antiviral therapies. For women, however, these benefits have been much less pronounced than for men. At the heart of women's HIV risk is gender-based discrimination, which keeps women, and especially women of color, poor and dependent. Although human rights issues are often linked with AIDS issues abroad, in the US they receive insufficient attention in our response to women's HIV risk. Advocacy from public health professionals is needed to overcome the longstanding paternalistic attitudes of federal agencies toward women and to change the paradigm of women's HIV/AIDS prevention and care. Examples of unjust and punitive social policies that may affect women's HIV risk include the 1996 welfare policy legislation, drug treatment policies for women, and women's access to medical research and technology. The overriding public health response to AIDS consists of behavioral interventions aimed at the individual. But this approach will not successfully address the issues of women with AIDS until efforts are made to eliminate society's unjust and unhealthy laws, policies, and practicles.  (+info)

Assessing the effects of welfare reform policies on reproductive and infant health. (3/200)

OBJECTIVES: The welfare reform law of 1996 marked a historical moment in US policy toward the poor by ending the entitlement to cash assistance, by requiring work, and by establishing time limits. This article examines the potential impact on the health of women and children, the primary recipients of welfare benefits. METHODS: The authors outline the reproductive health outcomes most likely to be sensitive to welfare policies, identify indicators that might be used to assess these outcomes, review empirical evidence, and suggest specific methods and data sources. RESULTS: State welfare requirements could improve health outcomes or deter families from Medicaid and food stamps, as well as income support, thus worsening health outcomes. National and state data may prove useful in detecting these effects; however, new data sources may be required for specific health-related questions. CONCLUSIONS: Assessing the effects of welfare policies on reproductive and infant health is possible, although challenging. Reauthorization of the legislation is required in 2002; it is essential that the consequences for health be included in the next round of public debate.  (+info)

Self-reported legal needs of women with or at risk for HIV infection. The Her Study Group. (4/200)

Women at risk for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection are often poor and members of racial or ethnic minorities. In addition to legal concerns that might be common among persons with similar sociodemographic characteristics, HIV infection adds the potential of possible stigma and discrimination, as well as the prospect of illness and increased mortality. To determine women's perceptions of need for and access to legal services and whether such perceptions are affected by HIV infection, from November 1993 through September 1995 we interviewed 509 women with or at risk for HIV infection by virtue of injection drug use or high-risk sexual behaviors in New York and Baltimore, Maryland. A majority of women, regardless of HIV serostatus, reported current or future needs for legal assistance with government benefits. More than 25% reported needing current or future legal help with housing, debts, arrangements for care of children, a will, and advance directives. Substantial minorities of women reported other legal needs. HIV-positive women were significantly more likely to report anticipated future need for help with paternal custody or visitation, current need in making a will, and anticipated future assistance with advance directives. For most items, a majority of women thought they knew where to receive help. However, among women reporting a current need, only a minority actually were receiving legal assistance. This study suggests that the extent of legal needs among women with or at risk for HIV infection is substantial, and that few receive legal assistance. With few exceptions, at least for women early in the course of illness, HIV infection does not appear to alter the pattern or extent of legal needs. There are dramatic differences, regardless of HIV status, between expectation and reality in women's access to legal services.  (+info)

Welfare reform: advocacy and intervention in the health care setting. (5/200)

Welfare reform has drastically altered the lives of poor families in the US. In its wake, many former recipients are not receiving whatever transitional benefits and other safeguards to which they remain entitled under federal and state laws. Families are losing access to Medicaid and are not receiving the child care assistance or Food Stamps for which they continue to be eligible. Ill-served by stringent time limits and work requirements, lack of child care assistance, and lack of training and educational opportunities for the development of skills that will lead to better jobs, families need help to navigate the complexities of the new welfare system. Boston Medical Center's Department of Pediatrics has instituted a welfare screening project to educate families about their rights under welfare reform and assist them in advocating for themselves and their children.  (+info)

Health care, federalism and the new Social Union. (6/200)

The Social Union framework agreement and the Health Accord provide examples of the close relationship that exists between federalism and the delivery of health care. These recent agreements represent a move from a federal-unilateral style of federalism to a more collaborative model. This shift will potentially affect federal funding for health care, interpretation of the Canada Health Act and the development of new health care initiatives. The primary advantage of the new collaborative model is protection of jurisdictional autonomy. Its primary disadvantages are blurring of accountability and potential for exclusion of the public from decision-making.  (+info)

Gender differences in health care access indicators in an urban, low-income community. (7/200)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined factors associated with gender differences in health insurance coverage and having a usual source of medical care. METHODS: In-person interviews were conducted with a community sample of 695 residents of Central Harlem, New York City. Predictors of the 2 outcome variables and the interaction of key variables with gender were analyzed via logistic regression. RESULTS: No strong patterns emerged to explain gender differentials in having insurance coverage and having a usual provider. However, women employed full time had increased odds of insurance coverage, whereas employment had no similar effect among men. Public assistance evidenced a strong relationship with insurance coverage among both men and women. Socioeconomic factors and health insurance were important independent predictors of having a usual source of health care for men but had little effect among women. CONCLUSIONS: Expanding the availability of both public insurance and affordable private coverage for men living in low-income communities is an important means of reducing gender disparities in access to health care. Public assistance is an important means of enabling access to health care for men as well as women.  (+info)

Child hunger in Canada: results of the 1994 National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth. (8/200)

BACKGROUND: In Canada, hunger is believed to be rare. This study examined the prevalence of hunger among Canadian children and the characteristics of, and coping strategies used by, families with children experiencing hunger. METHODS: The data originated from the first wave of data collection for the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth, conducted in 1994, which included 13,439 randomly selected Canadian families with children aged 11 years or less. The respondents were asked about the child's experience of hunger and consequent use of coping strategies. Sociodemographic and other risk factors for families experiencing hunger, use of food assistance programs and other coping strategies were analyzed by means of multiple logistic regression analysis. RESULTS: Hunger was experienced by 1.2% (206) of the families in the survey, representing 57,000 Canadian families. Single-parent families, families relying on social assistance and off-reserve Aboriginal families were overrepresented among those experiencing hunger. Hunger coexisted with the mother's poor health and activity limitation and poor child health. Parents offset the needs of their children by depriving themselves of food. INTERPRETATION: Physicians may wish to use these demographic characteristics to identify and assist families with children potentially at risk for hunger.  (+info)

Abstract: We examine how participation in the Food Stamp and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Programs is associated with self-reported household food hardships, using data from a longitudinal survey of low-income families living in Boston, Chicago and San Antonio. In addition to the measures of hardships and program participation, the survey includes measures of income, wealth, social resources, disability, physical health and family structure, measures that help us to account for selection between recipient and non-recipient households. For our multivariate analyses, we estimate multiple indicator multiple cause models that are modified to incorporate discrete outcome variables and to account for longitudinal data. Estimates from these models reveal that participation in the Food Stamp Program is associated with fewer food hardships, while participation in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program has no detectable association with hardships.. FOOD STAMPS, TEMPORARY ASSISTANCE ...
That is twice as many as the U.S. workforce as a whole, Jacobs said.. The need for public assistance among fast-food workers is the rule rather than exception even if you work more than 40 hours, he said..

Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on the Food Stamp Program, focusing on: (1) how the household definition evolved into its current form; (2) whether the current household definition contributes to homelessness; and (3) alternative household definitions for food stamp eligibility.GAO found that: (1) in 1971, a food stamp household was defined based on household members sharing their resources and living together; (2) in 1977, the food stamp household was changed to focus on individuals who purchased food and prepared meals together; (3) to help combat homelessness, the definition was broadened to permit adults who have minor children and live with their parents to form separate households if they purchase food and prepare meals separately; (4) the current definition of a food stamp household contains a disincentive which could discourage people from sharing housing, thereby contributing to homelessness; (5) six alternatives would group people on the basis of familial

The Colorado Works Program is a work-focused public assistance program that started on July 1,1997. Colorado Works can provide individuals and families with temporary assistance, support services including work supports, and education and training.The assistance and supports provided are designed to help Coloradans on their journey to become independent of government assistance and ultimately self-sufficient.. The program is also designed to give county departments of human services the ability and flexibility to work with families to meet their needs. The Colorado Works Program varies from county to county. Each county designs and runs the Colorado Works program and when doing so must follow all federal and state laws and rules.. Your county may refer to the benefits you receive as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits. This is because TANF is the federal program that took the place of the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) Program.. ...

Description: The American Community Survey (ACS) is a nationwide survey designed to provide communities a fresh look at how they are changing. The ACS replaced the decennial census long form in 2010 and thereafter by collecting long form type information throughout the decade rather than only once every 10 years. Questionnaires are mailed to a sample of addresses to obtain information about households -- that is, about each person and the housing unit itself. The American Community Survey produces demographic, social, housing and economic estimates in the form of 1-year, 3-year and 5-year estimates based on population thresholds. The strength of the ACS is in estimating population and housing characteristics. It produces estimates for small areas, including census tracts and population subgroups. Although the ACS produces population, demographic and housing unit estimates,it is the Census Bureaus Population Estimates Program that produces and disseminates the official estimates of the ...
Postpartum depression (PPD) occurs in approximately 10% to 16% of mothers who have recently delivered babies. The impact of PPD is profound, causing considerable emotional pain for the mother as well as possible disturbances in infant development and later child adjustment. If left untreated, the mothers depression may cause strain on family life and her relationship with her child. Further research is needed to discover treatments to effectively reduce the risk of experiencing PPD. Despite preliminary findings that suggest that psychosocial treatments may prevent postpartum mood disturbances, few studies have examined the effects of preventive therapy to reduce PPD in women at risk for PPD. An area of even greater neglect is the testing of such a treatment for financially disadvantaged women, who represent a group at high risk for PPD and a group less likely to access treatment for depression than middle-class women. The Postpartum Prevention Program (PPP), an interpersonal therapy program ...
Alexander and her classmates kept each other motivated through the rigorous five-month training program.. It was stressful, she said.

First, I must ask, where do you get your information from? And second, even if its ONLY two years…thats still too damn long. Ive done plenty of traveling throughout the United States, and again, I see help wanted signs EVERY WHERE! I understand that many of those jobs are low paying and little to no benefits, so yes, many people need public assistance. I have no quarrel with that. But I DO have a quarrel with people who decide to stay working at dead end, low paying jobs. Or those who do NOTHING to earn a living and subsist off welfare, even if it IS only for 2 years. Many years ago, I found myself in a situation where I had no choice but to apply for public assistance. Because I was a single white, young male, I was made to jump thru a lot of hoops…just to get an extremely meager amount of help. Never mind that Id been paying into the system for many years at that point…apparently I wasnt as deserving or qualified as others. But, I felt like such a low life for allowing myself to ...

One Republican lawmaker in Minnesota expressed a peculiar but existing belief in GOP circles Friday afternoon, claiming that food stamps recipients are virtually similar to feeding wild animals. State Rep. Mary Franson released a Youtube video describing her hopes of reducing the amount of time residents in Minnesota could stay on food stamps from five years to three. And here, its kind of ironic, Ill read you this little funny clip that we got from a friend, she said. It says, Isnt it ironic that the food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever. Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to please not feed the animals, because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.. Franson is not the first Republican to make this comparison. In 2010, then South Carolina Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer said exactly the same thing. According to the ...
Acy Cummings, a 55-year-old tenant farmer from North Carolina, didnt bring statistics and eloquent statements to Washington yesterday to support his position.. Neither did Mary Anna Minger, a 60-year-old North Carolinian who said she has been living on $198 a month.. But by all accounts, Cummings and Minger were the star witnesses at a House hearing on legislation designed to reform the nations food stamp program, which is scheduled to expire Sept.30.. Part of that legislation, sponsored by Rep. Frederick R. Richmond (D-N.Y.), would eliminate the so-called purchase requirement. This would no increase the benefits of households already on the food stamp rolls, but would remove an obstacle that prevents many needy families from participating, according to Richmond.. A similar bill was introduced March 1 by Sens. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) and George McGovern (D-S.D.). The Carter administration is also considering such a proposal.. Cummings and Minger said they agreed with the idea.. Cummings, a stooped, ...
Downloadable! Current debates about the success of TANF reforms have been obscured by the use of inconsistent indicators of success, as well as by measurement difficulties associated with alternative indicators. This paper considers conceptual and measurement issues associated with three different indicators of economic well-being: independence from public assistance, having income above the poverty threshold, and freedom from material hardship. Survey and administrative data from a sample of TANF participants illustrate the sensitivity of conclusions to alternative ways of measuring each indicator. Also considered is the extent to which dependence, poverty, and hardship coincide, or capture important differences in outcomes. The principles underlying TANF reforms have implications for appropriate measures of economic well-being, as the empirical importance of these implications demonstrates. © 2004 by the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management.
This paper evaluates the health impact of a signature initiative of the War on Poverty: the roll out of the modern Food Stamp Program (FSP) during the 1960s and early 1970s. Using variation in the month the FSP began operating in each U.S. county, we find that pregnancies exposed to the FSP three months prior to birth yielded deliveries with increased birth weight, with the largest gains at the lowest birth weights. These impacts are evident with difference-in-difference models and event study analyses. Estimated impacts are robust to inclusion of county fixed effects, time fixed effects, measures of other federal transfer spending, state by year fixed effects, and county-specific linear time trends. We also find that the FSP rollout leads to small, but statistically insignificant, improvements in neonatal infant mortality. We conclude that the sizeable increase in income from Food Stamp benefits improved birth outcomes for both whites and African Americans, with larger impacts for births to ...

WASHINGTON - Republican leaders hoping to recover from an embarrassing defeat on the House floor last month are preparing to split a massive farm bill in two and vote on it today. The GOP House leadership released a smaller version of the five-year bill late Wednesday, dropping a politically sensitive section of the legislation that would have made small cuts to the $80 billion-a-year food stamp program. Republicans are divided on how big cuts should be to food stamps, which have doubled in cost in the last five years. Democrats have opposed any cuts.
CHICAGO (AP) - Diabetics skipping regular checkups. Young asthmatics not getting preventive care. A surge in expensive emergency room visits. Doctors and public health experts warn of poor health and rising costs they say will come from sweeping Trump administration changes that would deny green cards to immigrants who use Medicaid, food stamps or other forms of public assistance.. Some advocates say theyre already seeing the fallout even before the complex 837-page rule takes effect in October.. President Donald Trumps administration trumpeted its aggressive approach last week as a way to keep only self-sufficient immigrants in the country, but health experts say it could force millions of low-income people to choose between needed services and their bid to stay legally in the United States..

Atwater was contrasting this with Ronald Reagans campaign, which he felt was devoid of any kind of racism, any kind of reference. However, others like U.S. law professor and author of the 2014 book Dog Whistle Politics Ian Haney-López described Reagan as blowing a dog whistle when the candidate told stories about Cadillac-driving welfare queens and strapping young bucks buying T-bone steaks with food stamps while he was campaigning for the presidency.[24][25][26] He argues that such rhetoric pushes middle-class white Americans to vote against their economic self-interest in order to punish undeserving minorities who, they believe, are receiving too much public assistance at their expense. According to López, conservative middle-class whites, convinced by powerful economic interests that minorities are the enemy, supported politicians who promised to curb illegal immigration and crack down on crime but inadvertently also voted for policies that favor the extremely rich, such as ...
The diffuse and overlapping nature of federal welfare spending has led to some confusion regarding the scope and nature of benefits. For instance, Newark Mayor Cory Booker has recently received a great deal of attention for adopting the food stamp diet in which he spends only $4 a day on food (the median individual benefit) to apparently illustrate the insufficiency of food stamp spending ($80 billion a year) or the impossibility of reductions. The situation Booker presents, however, is not accurate: a low-income individual on food stamps may qualify for $25,000 in various forms of welfare support from the federal government on top of his or her existing income and resources-including access to 15 different food assistance programs. Further, even if one unrealistically assumes that no other welfare benefits are available, the size of the food stamp benefit increases as ones income decreases, as the benefit is designed as a supplement to existing resources; it is explicitly not intended to be ...

The state defines children most at risk for lead poisoning as those on Medi-Cal, Californias healthcare system for the needy, and other public assistance programs. Youngsters in lower-income families potentially have higher exposure to old homes with chipped and peeling lead paint or may be most likely to live in areas with lead contamination in the soil or water.. The state and federal governments require that these toddlers be tested when they are 12 and 24 months old. In 2013, an estimated 469,000 children statewide were supposed to be tested, according to the study.. Almost all California counties failed to meet the mandate, the study found. Only one, San Francisco, showed that it tested more children than required. Mendocino County ranked worst, failing to test 87 percent of required children.. More than half of the target children in 16 counties were not tested, and in larger counties like Los Angeles, Fresno and Santa Barbara 30 percent to 48 percent went untested.. Its the ...
Initial reaction to President Carters proposal overhaul of the nations welfare system ranged yesterday all the way from glowing praise to outright denunciation - depending on which politician and interest group was speaking.. Sen.

But the Finance Committees ranking Republican, Sen. Carl T. Curtis of Nebraska, called the proposal a travesty and said it was nothing more than a warmed-over version of what Department of Health, Education and Welfare planners have been pushing for the last decade - a guaranteed annual income. The working men and women across America want fewer people on welfare, not millions more.. Between the acceptance of Moynihan, who drafted President Nixons unsuccessful welfare proposal called the family assistance plan eight years ago, and the rejection ...

Originally published in the Current Newspapers, July 31, 2013.. The ongoing battle between Walmart and workers is about the role that workers play in our city and our nation. We need to ensure that workers also benefit when economic growth continues and corporations produce more profit, higher stock prices and ever-escalated CEO compensation. The fight over Walmart is not about a better minimum wage. Its about livable wages, and the role of Walmart in the economy. We need profitable, efficient companies like Walmart to pay decent wages, and taxpayers shouldnt be subsidizing them when their CEOs and other top executives are making hundreds of millions of dollars a year.. As Americas largest company, Walmart has a huge impact. Not just in Washington, D.C., but in every community with a Walmart. Walmart brings down wages everywhere. Its low wages require public subsidy of its workers, since Walmart workers make so little that they must rely on Medicaid and other public assistance programs to ...
If your locality does not have a debris management plan when disaster strikes, use DEQs Debris Management Planning Job Aid to help you answer key questions in order to initiate debris removal activities. This job aid is not intended to replace the more thorough planning process required to develop a formal debris management plan, but is instead for your use during real-time disaster response and recovery situations. Local governments with approved Debris Management Plans in place prior to incidents requiring debris removal could receive higher reimbursement rates through FEMA Public Assistance programs.. If your locality intends to manage storm-related solid wastes (such as household waste, white goods, construction/demolition debris, etc.) at a temporary debris management site, then you will need to obtain an emergency permit from DEQ. An emergency permit is not necessary for sites that will only manage vegetative waste (such as trees, branches, shrubs, leaves, stumps, roots, and other clean ...

One of the most insidious effects of living in high-poverty, chronically disadvantaged neighborhoods is the severe strain these areas have on residents mental and emotional health. New research shows that poverty imposes a psychological burden so great that the poor are left with little mental bandwidth with which to perform everyday tasks.. The constant anxiety and stress resulting from witnessing and experiencing trauma and violence in distressed neighborhoods, negotiating the sacrifices and trade-offs caused by food insecurity, living in unstable housing conditions, struggling to pay bills, and dealing with numerous other worries burn up cognitive capacity that could otherwise be used for productive activities like navigating public assistance systems, providing for an entire family on a limited budget, and helping children with schoolwork.. For children, the long-term mental health effects of poverty are even more alarming. In addition to occupying cognitive resources needed for education ...

New York, NY - Councilmember Stephen Levin, Public Advocate Tish James and other local elected officials joined early childhood educators, parents, children, and advocates at a press conference on the steps of City Hall Wednesday to call for salary parity between early childhood educators at community-based organizations and those at the Department of Education. CBO-based educators, who serve children in some of NYCs most vulnerable communities, have gone a decade without a raise, and many are forced to rely on public assistance to survive.. At the press conference, teachers like Nadia Alexander spoke about their dedication to educating children from low-income communities - despite struggling with poverty themselves. A certified teacher with five years of experience in a community based organization contracted by the citys Administration for Childrens Services (ACS) makes $41,700, while a teacher with the same credentials and experience in the public schools earns about $17,000 more. With 10 ...
Psychiatric disorder in young people is a common public health problem with serious consequences. According to recent prevalence estimates, 3 to 5 million older adolescents with a diagnosable mental illness are currently living in the United States.1-3 Studies have shown that the majority of adolescents with psychiatric disorder suffer adverse young adult outcomes. Both treatment-based and community-based studies have demonstrated that, during the period of transition to adulthood, adolescents with psychiatric disorder are at high risk of dropping out of school, being arrested, failing to sustain employment, experiencing residential instability and homelessness, relying on public assistance, and being without community supports.4-14. School completion for students with psychiatric disorders compares unfavourably with the US general population, in which an estimated 81% of young adults complete secondary school.15 Based on a sample of over 8000 secondary school students, the National Longitudinal ...

Employed mothers who divorce are much less likely to become welfare recipients than unemployed mothers, but a divorce often increases a households dependence on government assistance.. Anywhere from 17 to 40 percent of mothers with minor children receive welfare benefits, and 17 to 25 percent of wives who divorce after two to eight years of marriage receive AFDC benefits (Aid to Families with Dependent Children, now called TANF, or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families).. Some conservative critics claims welfare benefits decrease the incentives for remarriage, a path out of poverty for men and women alike, but in general divorced mothers receive welfare for three to four years, on average, and begin to work themselves out of poverty.. In Social Democratic countries, because womens welfare benefits usually increase sharply (and, in some cases, double) following divorce, womens average net income increases by 32 percent, but divorced women enjoy different degrees of economic well-being ...

President Obamas proposed 2012 budget will cut several billion dollars from the governments energy assistance fund for poor people, officials briefed on the subject told National Journal….. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, would see funding drop by about $2.5 billion from an authorized 2009 total of $5.1 billion. The proposed cut will not touch the programs emergency reserve fund, about $590 million, which can be used during particularly harsh cold snaps or extended heat spells, three officials told National Journal.. In 2010, Obama signed into law an omnibus budget resolution that released a total of about $5 billion in LIHEAP grants for 2011. Pointing to the increasing number of Americans who made use of the grants last year, advocates say that LIHEAP is already underfunded. The American Gas Association predicts that 3 million Americans eligible for the program wont be able to receive it unless LIHEAP funding stays at its current level….. Still, despite the ...

Those who found jobs did better, with average incomes of $13,304. Still, 51 percent of those who landed jobs remained below the poverty line and 30 percent remained in severe poverty.. Shannon Cotsoradis, president and CEO of Kansas Action for Children, said she is concerned that more Kansans are being disqualified from food stamps because they arent working enough hours than because they are earning too much.. A true measure of success would be the number of Kansans leaving public assistance programs because they earn too much to qualify. Instead, the data presented today shows that Kansas adults are losing food assistance because they arent able to find enough work and earn too little, Cotsoradis said in a written statement. These policy changes do not promote self-sufficiency - they only force some of the states poorest Kansans to go hungry.. The report showed 59 percent of the 12,859 Kansans in the first group removed from food stamps found jobs within one year - meaning about 5,272 ...

This column by Susan A. Carleson, CEO of the ACRU and the Carleson Center for Public Policy (CCPP), was published March 25, 2011 on the American Thinker website.. With federal and state budgets exploding, welfare reform is once again on the menu.. Just about everyone agrees that the 1996 welfare reform was a huge success. By 2009, the number of dependent families had dropped by two-thirds, and federal spending for cash welfare assistance remained stable at $16.5 billion a year. But most importantly, the 96 reform gave dignity to millions by breaking the vicious cycle of multi-generational poverty. Last week, the Republican Study Committee unveiled its Welfare Reform Act of 2011, which includes work requirements for Food Stamps and a mandatory cap on total welfare spending. It was described as building upon the success of the 1996 welfare reform. While admirable in its focus on reducing government spending, the new bill does not include the key reform that led to success in 1996 - block ...

This report discusses legislative issues regarding food stamp appropriations. Authorization for food stamp appropriations was to have expired at the end of FY82; in addition, the FY83-85 budget resolution assumed substantial savings in food stamps. As a result, and with the potential of an FY82 food stamp funding shortfall averted by the appropriation of a $1 billion supplemental, Congress acted to reauthorize appropriations and limit program costs in the 1982 budget reconciliation process.

202-828-0940. Republicans in the House of Representatives are proposing to slash $40 billion from SNAP, the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps. This drastic cut will pull food benefits from nearly one million Americans-with kids hit hardest. Almost half of food stamp recipients are children, and another 22 percent are adults living with children.. Statement of Green For All CEO Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins. These drastic cuts to food assistance represent a new level of extreme in Congress. Theyre an attack on our kids, our seniors, and our most vulnerable citizens who rely on food stamps just to get by.. The same members of Congress who want to strip food assistance are fiercely defending tax loopholes and subsidies for wealthy corporations.. It raises a fundamental question about what we value in this country. Making sure our neighbors and the children in our communities get enough food to eat, no matter what else happens to them, is a key part of the social ...
By John Howat & Philene Taormina Increased accessibility of home and community-based long-term care and related government funding make independent living more possible for many older Americans. High household energy prices and expenditures, however, threaten home energy security of low-income elderly people who seek to age safely in their own homes. Consumer protections that reduce arrearage rates and the shutoff of services may enhance the effectiveness of the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program and other energy programs. Various policies, such as the a affordable energy bargain-a model program offering long-term affordability and arrearage management options-would protect vulnerable elderly customers from the life-threatening loss of service..

Why should you be able to buy Dora the Explorer cereal but not a Natures Way Childrens Chewable vitamin, said Dan Fabricant, PhD, president and CEO of NPA. Expanding WIC to include multivitamins would create an oasis for the 25 million Americans living in food deserts and make it easier for people to provide healthier lives for their families.. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines a food desert as parts of the country vapid of fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods, usually found in impoverished areas. As part of an effort to bring awareness to this growing problem, the USDA created an interactive map to show the areas most impacted, which can be viewed at www.ers.usda.gov/data-products/food-access-research-atlas/go-to-the-atlas/.. Since 1978, the WIC Supplemental Food Program has served low-income, at risk pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women, infants, and children up to age 5.

Today a family of four can have income of nearly $21,000 and still be considered to be living in poverty. This income does not include a substantial amount of governmental benefits: noncash benefits such as food stamps (about $2,200), housing assistance (about $5,400), Medicaid (about $6,000 for a family of four), the State Childrens Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) (about $1,000 per child), energy assistance (about $400), the school lunch and breakfast programs (as much as $600 per child), and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) (about $400 per person). It also does not count refundable tax credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) (about $1,700), because they are post-tax. (All figures are average benefit amounts in 2002 regardless of family size, unless otherwise noted.) In addition, assets, such as the family home are not counted. Nor is the income of cohabitors and nonfamily household members. All of this non-income and governmental ...

Getting food stamps for unemployed workers does require paperwork and an interview with a social worker.

Posted by Ted Biondo on Jun 21, 2013 in Corporate welfare, Federal income taxes, nanny state, politics, welfare fraud , 50 comments. House conservatives on Thursday defeated the multiyear $500 billion farm bill by a vote of 195-234, objecting to the massive size of the pork-filled bill. The White House threatened to veto the House version because it cut too much money ($3.2B) out of the food stamp program, which makes up 80% of the farm bill. The cost of the food stamp program has doubled in just five years under the Obama administration, despite his claims that our economy is on the mend. The Senate version cut a small $400 million per year out.... read more ...
Leyva is a regular at the clinic. She qualifies for Medi-Cal because her application for asylum was approved two years ago. But, she said, her attorney advised her against applying for the government-funded health insurance program out of fear that the Trump administration may decide to deny legal permanent residency to people who depend on public assistance - the so-called public charge rule.. If the rule does go into effect, it cannot be applied retroactively, and legal challenges could stop enforcement for some time. But that has not stopped many attorneys from incorrectly advising their clients to take an unnecessary step that can lead to dangerous health consequences.. I dont know how the law is going to change, and I dont want it to affect my green card, Leyva said. Im afraid to even go to a (federally qualified health clinic for underserved populations) because Im worried about my immigration status. I pray to God every day that I dont fall sick..

Many people who do not fall into the low-income category reject the idea of going on Medicaid as they age, become frail, and in need of home and health services that Medicaid programs provide.. Medicaid is a federal health-care program for the poor, and elderly people who work all their lives often dont believe its for them. In fact, many of them are insulted when anyone suggests that they apply for it. And the idea of applying for Medicaid, public assistance, or government aid doesnt make it any better when they learn that Medicare -- the federal health-care program for the aged -- does not pay for the long-term care needs of aging citizens.. For anyone who does not have private funds or insurance to pay for long-term care, Medicaid pays the bill. And senior citizens who worked all their lives and who may have a little money saved can still apply to Medicaid to get help with their personal and home care.. Northwest Ohio Area Office on Aging officials say that its unfortunate for senior ...

We will analyze the construction of social problems linked to states of poverty, including hunger, homelessness, health care, disability, discrimination and violence. We will ask how conditions of poverty are defined in terms of their affect on the lives of women and children. These issues will be considered by taking a broad view of the welfare state beyond the impact of public assistance and social service ...
Earned Income Tax Credit or EITC also called as EIC is an important benefit for working people who have low to moderate income. The EIC is a refundable credit, enacted as a work incentive in the Tax Reduction Act of 1975. It provides a financial boost to working individuals and families. It has become one of the primary forms of public assistance for low income working taxpayers. A tax credit means more money in your pocket. It reduces the amount of tax you owe and may also give you a refund. Eligibility for the EIC is based on the taxpayers earned income, adjusted gross income, investment income, filing status, and work status in the United States.

The findings suggest that both youths mental health and minor delinquent behaviors can be reduced by fostering social support among family, teachers, and supportive social groups even when socioeconomic disadvantage is present in their living conditions. Socioeconomic disadvantage--as measured by a resident communitys proportion of households receiving public assistance, proportion of individuals with incomes below the poverty level, proportion of adults without a high school diploma and without a college degree, and the unemployment rate--was significantly associated with high depressive symptoms and low levels of minor delinquency among the adolescents studied. The existence and severity of depressive symptoms were reduced by adolescents perceived social support from parents, teachers, and friends, as well as perceptions that family members had fun together, paid attention to them, and understood them. Thus, living in a community and a family under the impact of socioeconomic disadvantage ...
Background: It is important not to ignore the impact of parental cancer on children and this is where oncology and palliative care nurses can play a key role; providing support to parents as a regular aspect of oncological nursing care. Objectives: This study explored the experience, needs and confidence of nurses working in acute cancer services when supporting parents with cancer who have dependent children. Methods: Two focus group interviews were conducted with oncology and palliative care nurses in one acute hospital trust in the south of England. Results: Nurses described how they identified with their patients as a parent themselves. This identification with patients added to the emotionally charged context of care and resulted in nurse avoidance of the troubling issue of dependent children. Nurses identified the importance of peer support with regular opportunities to reflect on practice when dealing with issues relevant to parents and children. Conclusions: Oncology and palliative care ...

Even though many of them are aware where to find assistance, a fraction of the cases are reported and a self disclosure is happening to friends than family members or public assistance. Elder population, those who are experiencing various kinds of abuse and neglect encounters significant barriers to disclosure. These obstacles can include diminished capacity to comprehend, ignorance of the law, cultural differences and lack of knowledge about abuse (Donovan & Regehr, 2010 p.175 ...
