I adopted 5 children. I get a adoption subsidy. Is that counted as income when applying for food stamps ?

Q) I adopted 5 children. I get a adoption subsidy. Is that counted as income when applying for food stamps ?

A) If you are receiving adoption assistance payments for your children you may have questions about how adoption assistance interacts with other financial support programs. Because adoption assistance is not considered taxable income by the IRS*, you may think that it will not count as income for other government programs. But each program is different and many social assistance program do count adoption assistance—or a part of it—as income.
