Sound Off: Kansas Changes Requirement for receiving Food Stamps
In an effort to encourage employment over welfare dependency, the Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) announced this week that it will allow a federal waiver that allowed adults ages 18 to 49 who are capable of working but who are not employed and who do not have dependent children to receive food assistance to expire.
Those individuals currently benefiting from the waiver will be required to meet a minimum work requirement or be enrolled in a federally-approved job training program.
