(WASHINGTON) - An examination of six key federal programs for low-income people found wide variances in eligibility requirements and discrepancies in the level of benefits they provided, the Government Accountability Office said.

GAO reviewed the Earned Income Tax Credit, Medicaid, Housing Choice Voucher program, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps), Supplemental Security Income, and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
