Act 80, passed this year, eliminated the $150-million general assistance fund, which gave monthly cash grants of about $200 to more than 61,000 low-income and disabled Pennsylvanians.
Those cash payments of $200 a month for single adults, couples without children, and some disabled people, end Wednesday.
The cuts in aid to 61,000 poor Pennsylvanians go into effect July 31st.
Under the new law, a photo ID from any of Pennsylvania’s personal care or long-term care facilities is acceptable at the polls as long as it has an expiration date.
PCA says it’s due to new state regulations that take effect July 1st.
