Pennsylvania Ends Disability Aid for Mentally Ill

Pennsylvania continues to hack away at social services for its poorest citizens.

This week, the Department of Public Welfare ended a program that expedited the process of getting Social Security disability payments to low-income, disabled women suffering from mental illness.

The move came just weeks after Pennsylvania abolished its General Assistance Cash Grant program, which provided $200 per month to people with no other sources of income.

Please join us in opposing these budget cuts by contacting your state lawmakers today.
