Food Stamps and Utility Expenses: Advocacy letters and CLE flier
Attached are two updated documents and a Client Legal Education flieron FS and Utility Expenses. MLRI has received reports of Food Stamp recipients being underpaid because DTA did not consider their heating/cooling expenses or receipt of fuel assistance when calculating their food stamp amount. In order to get the case updated prospectively and request a restoration of lost benefits, advocates and/or FS recipients should write a letter to the Assistant Director of the DTA office. The attached documents can serve as templates for advocates and pro-se Food Stamp recipients when they are requesting a restoration of lost benefits. The files are labelled accordingly (for advocate or FS recipient).
