Spending for Federal Benefits and Services for People with Low Income, FY2008- FY2011: An Update of Table B-1 from CRS Report R41625 (Modified to Remove Programs for Veterans) (PDF)

Source: Congressional Research Service (via U.S. Senate Budget Committee)

This memorandum provides information on federal spending for programs explicitly intended for people with low or limited income. The memorandum primarily includes a detailed table (Table 2) that shows federal spending for these programs in each of FY2008 through FY2011, with spending under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA, P.L. 111-5) identified separately. The table is an update of Table B-1 in CRS Report R41625, Federal Benefits and Services for People with Low Income: Programs, Policy, and Spending. Readers are referred to that report for important context and descriptions of the included programs and their categories (e.g., health, cash aid, food assistance, etc.). That report also includes a methodology appendix, a version of which appears at the end of this memo.
