Programs where income is required to be below a certain level for an individual to be eligible for aid, contributed to 30.3% of the total amount in benefits.
These means-tested programs include public or subsidized rental housing, Federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI), food stamps (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Women, Infants and Children (WIC), free and reduced lunch programs, Pell Grants, refundable tax credits and Medicaid.
