Interim Final Rule
Comment Period End Date

This action excludes certain utility reimbursements made by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) from income consideration in determining Food Stamp Program eligibility and benefits. This action will result in increased benefits to households that receive the reimbursements, a consistent nationwide policy, greater consistency in the treatment of housing and energy assistance payments, and more consistency with the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) Program.
