For American families living on food stamps and those who find food stamps application so hard, life is becoming a little easy. New York State’s new food stamps mobile app is quickly becoming one of the hottest apps.
And if things go as expected, many states will also roll out similar apps across America.Now most families may be able to apply for food stamps from the comfort of their homes. Or just about anywhere. It’s about time, right?
Right. Food stamps applications are notoriously hard and frustrating. Families sometimes wake up early in the morning just to be in line. Once they get there, long lines await them. Hours and hours of waiting. Appointments are hard to get. Phone calls ring off the hook. Fights and arguments break out easily. Sometimes long waiting list means families have to wait for months before their food stamps application is approved. That’s if they are lucky and all documents are complete.
No more. According to the New York Times, the 1.7 million people in New York City who receive food stamps and “those seeking food stamps can take pictures of the required documents with their phones and upload the photos to the app, similar to how customers use banking apps to make deposits.”
“Since March, when the app, Access HRA Mobile, was introduced, through June, applicants have uploaded more than a million documents, a number that continues to rise as more people learn they can use their phones instead of going to an office.”
How Snap or Food Stamps Help American Families
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP “offers nutrition assistance to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families and provides economic benefits to communities. SNAP is the largest program in the domestic hunger safety net. The Food and Nutrition Service works with State agencies, nutrition educators, and neighborhood and faith-based organizations to ensure that those eligible for nutrition assistance can make informed decisions about applying for the program and can access benefits.”
According to President Donald Trump’s own speech to the American people, food stamps and welfare benefits are of critical importance to America. It’s life or death to millions of American families. In President Donald Trump’s recent State of the Union address to the U.S Congress, he passionately emphasized that “Ninety-four million Americans are out of the labor force. Over 43 million people are now living in poverty, and over 43 million Americans are on food stamps. More than one in five people in their prime working years are not working. We have the worst financial recovery in 65 years.”
