probably, they count 'excess housing costs' or something to that effect…but I don't think its dollar for dollar..ie if housing goes up by 50, you don't get 50 more food stamps…only a portion of that
unlike ignorant people, I have researched this. I don't know the details, but I know they consider housing and may deduct a portion of the housing expense from income which increases the benefit.
If I had to guess, I would say SNAP would increase by about 25% of the rent increase…so that would be about $12 for a $50 rent increase
Any increase in your rent would not have a affect on your food stamp allowance.
You are speaking of two separate issues.
I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.
If it is considered that you could afford to pay more rent, your food stamps
Unrelated. So, no.
