The Government Wants to Help
Government website USA.gov has a section devoted to helping Americans determine which federal government benefit programs they qualify for.
As USA.gov puts it:
“Are you struggling to pay your rent or mortgage? Maybe you need help with prescription drug costs or your energy bills.
If you have a low income or are experiencing financial hardship, federal government benefit programs may be able to help you pay for food, housing, health care, and other expenses.
Understanding which benefits you qualify for and how to apply can be a challenge. But information from USAGov can help.
Learn about the eligibility requirements and application process for programs like SNAP (food stamps) and Medicaid. Understand your low-income housing options. And protect yourself with tips for avoiding common scams related to government grants and loans.”
To find out, visit USA.gov’s Government Benefits, Grants, and Loans section to see which programs match your needs and eligibility, and how to begin the application process.
