  1. I think this is a good program but I feel so many kids are being left out because the parent guardian doesn’t work and also need to be married. I have custody of my grandkids and they can’t qualify for this program. Why one I’m on disability and me and my husband is separated but he does work. I did sign up but told the interviewer that I was single when she asked. I looked at myself that way but in reality I’m not. The only thing that kept my child from being accepted was because I said single. I don’t feel as this is fair. Thank you for listening.
