Food Stamps/SNAP
Date: 
04/04/2017 - 9:30am to 12:15pm
Location: 
MCLE Conference Center, Ten Winter Place, Boston

The federally funded Food Stamp/Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the first line of defense against hunger for thousands of Massachusetts residents. Massachusetts continues to implement policy changes to increase SNAP participation and the value of the monthly benefit. However, individual households often struggle with getting their SNAP applications and recertifications approved at over-burdened local offices. Collecting all the required proofs can be overwhelming for an unrepresented household.

Elder Benefits Programs
Date: 
04/13/2017 - 9:30am to 4:00pm
Location: 
MCLE Conference Center, Ten Winter Place, Boston

In these hard times, elders in Massachusetts depend on a variety of benefits programs to meet their income and health needs. These include income supplement programs, retirement benefits, home-based care services, and health care programs. This program provides legal services advocates, lawyers, and paralegals in private practice, social and health services workers, and community activists with an overview and basic knowledge of the resources available to elders, with an emphasis on program criteria relevant to elders and how to navigate the complexities across programs.
