The Floyd D. Spence National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2001 (Public Law 106-398) requires the Armed Forces to pay certain low-income service members and their families a family subsistence allowance not to exceed $500 per month so they will not have to rely on food stamps. The Armed Forces will pay the FSSA payment to eligible service members beginning June 1, 2001.
