There is a number of help for those in needs.

Just to mention a few options

- housing assistance for persons in need

- food stamps for low income families

- assistance to pay for heating and/or cooling your dwelling

- medical insurance form families with children

- financial aid for education

- tax credits for working families with children.

- subsidies, programs and resources that can help with child care costs.

etc.

Each of these have special requirements and qualification - mainly based on personal income.

Let me know if you need any details.

I meant, I live with her which is an added expense for her. Are there any programs to assist me because I live with her?
Expert:  lev-tax replied 6 months ago.

I am not clear on your logic...
The fact of you living with your daughter is an added expense for HER - not for you - but you are asking for the programs to assist YOU?

Expert:  lev-tax replied 6 months ago.

If she provides more than half of your living expenses - she could be eligible to claim you as a dependent on HER tax return.

In additional - she may deduct medical expenses she paid for you.

But as you are living with your daughter - and she paid most of living expenses - that is a reduction of your own living costs.
