This is actually part two so if you want to see the other 5 states that give most to their residents see the supporting link below.
The Pennsylvania Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) is a connection between Federal government health coverage and the state. It seems to balance out the needs and helps people who earn too much to qualify for medicaid, but too little to little to buy private coverage.The guideline are broad and yet specific to include the requirement of being a legal alien or natural born citizen. Head Start is for Pennsylvania children ages 3 to 5 years of age.The Early Head Start program is for pregnant women, infants and toddlers, which have different benefits and yet some similar help to lower income families.LIHEAP is energy assistance to Pennsylvania residents through grants that are given every month to pay heating bills.

New Jersey states right up front there are 12 benefit programs to residents. SCHIP is a federal and state funded health insurance program created to help New Jersey's uninsured children to get affordable health coverage. It is not welfare.It is for hard working families that cannot afford the high cost of private insurance and when that benefit is not a part of the employee package. Federal food stamp program is eligible for low income individuals or families which is guarded by the County Welfare Agency.LIHEAP is and assistive heating program for low income homes.

Special Supplemental nutrition program for women, infants and children and Summer Food Service continue efforts for low income families during times when school is out. New Jersey provides unemployment insurance benefits, weatherization assistance and other programs to residents.
As I was preparing this information I discovered Massachusetts increased their heating benefit to low income families a full 52% allowing a $1,025 amount from the State Department of Housing and Community Development.People who get fuel assistance for natural gas or electric heat will see a nearly double benefit supplied by the Federally funded Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.Former Governor Mitt Romney set into motion a Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector to cover all residents for health care needs.The people in Massachusetts who fail to get insurance could include the loss of a personal income tax deduction. A 6.25 % tax on the retail of all items and a 5 % tax on tangible personal property is charged to residents unless exempted by statute.Gun laws and regulations are some of the strictest in the country for both residents and visitors.Massachusetts residents are protected by several boards of registration of professions and trades. The licenses are issued by the Division of Professional Licensure through boards of registrations.There is a mass transit transportation system for community and out of town use too. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority operates trolley, trackless trolley and bus service to residents.Trains using Amtrak transport people from different states with that service.
Rhode Island residents could qualify for college funds by the Rhode Island Higher Education Assistance Authority (RIHEAA). There are savings programs, savings trust accounts. loans and Grants available to students.Personal Income tax in Rhode Island is between 3.75% and 5.99%. some exemptions exist so check with the Division of Taxation before you count on one payment or another or being exempt.Rhode Island provides services for aged, disabled and caregivers too. Human services or DHS permits child care assistance, long term care, medical assistance along with community programs for residents.Veterans, vocational rehabilitation and nutritional supplemental services help individuals and families who live in Rhode Island. Several general public and community programs are either stepping stones into Federal or State funded care programs for those in need. The formerly known food stamp program is now Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).The helpful online SNAP list mentions what foods are permitted to purchase on that assistance plan. Those are breads, cereals, fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, dairy products, fish and seeds, plants and items that produce food for households to eat. The list of items not covered by SNAP are: beer, wine, cigarettes, tobacco,paper products, household supplies, pet food, soap, vitamins, medicines, hot food and food that will be eaten in the store.
Actually all the 50 states give to residents who are in need. It is not necessary to move to be able to live if you cannot afford many things. You need to know the right people to contact to be given support and programs until you qualify for the needs you are asking for in any state. Start inquiring and you will find help in all the ways you require it.
