Cut By Food Stamps, Many Wait In Line For Home Heating Help

SAVANNAH, Ga. — Georgia agencies providing home heating help are reporting record numbers of applicants this winter.

A combination of budget cuts from Congress is straining organizations that keep needy residents out of the cold.

Last month, the federal government cut back on how much it sends people receiving supplemental nutrition assistance known as food stamps.

The increase in applications for energy help comes as agencies also are squeezed from the federal budget cuts known as sequestration.
