I was released from prison. Want to know if I qualify for any type of help.

Q) I was released from prison 12/5/18 and have been let go from my job due to my being a felon. I want to know if I qualify for any type of help or assistance and if I can get any medical coverage or support?

A) You can generally qualify for food stamps – Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and other assistance after being released from prison. Whether you are convicted or not and are incarcerated or released from incarceration, you can always sign up for your state’s Food Stamp and other social service programs.

A ban on SNAP assistance only applies to felons convicted of drug charges – a ban that has been maintained in only 6 states. The majority of states have either eliminated the ban or modified the restrictions.

  1. If you applied for food stamps and didn’t get them right away, you should have applied for “emergency food stamps” also contact the United Way in your state. Let them know you need food and other items.

  1. I have had my work hours dramatically reduced since March 09, 2020. I have fully exhausted my regular ui benefits and have received a letter if ineligibility for the PEUC. However, I meet all criteria and have filed an appeal and reconsideration. The CARES ACT is an emergency fund intended for those most impacted by covid 19 and the effects it has in each community. In Hawaii I am a Hospitality Hotel worker, a proud Local5 union member and I am in dire need of financial, rental,, and food assistance. My claim has been denied. Yet, 2020 has not yielded a similar income to that of 2019, gained thru my employment. I have relied on these emergency funds and have met all criteria set forth by the state of Hawaii. State, will u not malama na keiki o ka aina?
    Mahalo for all that has been done in the midst of the Global Pandemic.
