Pagination or Media Count:
We identified 95 needs-based federal programs that collectively comprised the public welfare system in fiscal year 1983. We researched the eligibility and benefit factors for 54 of the larger programs. Needs-based programs provide cash and in-kind benefits to low-income, needy, andor distressed individuals who do not financially contribute to the programs. If the individual can show sufficient need, he or she may be eligible for a number of different programs and benefits.
