Effective July 1, 2010, Food & Nutrition Services will be available to more households. In a positive step forward, the NC Division of Social Services (DSS) has decided to implement changes that will allow households with a gross income of 200% of the federal poverty level (rather than the current limit of 130% of the federal poverty level) to potentially qualify for benefits. NC DSS is also eliminating the asset test for most households. The FNS4NC Coalition applauds NC DSS for adopting this change! To learn more, read the story from the Star News of Wilmington.
