Food Stamp Law

County Assistance Office Case Workers refer to PA’s Dep’t of Public Welfare “Food Stamp Handbook”: http://services.dpw.state.pa.us/oimpolicymanuals/manuals/bop/fs/index.htm

This handbook, however, is drawn mostly from the Code of Federal Regulations and also from the Pennsylvania Code.

The Department of Agriculture regulations governing food stamps can be found at 7 C.F.R. 271 through 7 C.F.R. 283 http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov/cgi/t/text/text-idx?sid=c5778aa81303fbd390e16a1c181a9bef&c=ecfr&tpl=/ecfrbrowse/Title07/7cfrv4_02.tpl

The Pertinent provisions of the PA Code can be found here: http://www.pacode.com/secure/data/055/chapter501/chap501toc.html
