Trump prepping plan to reorganize welfare programs: report

June 6, 2018, The Hill, Peter Sullivan- The Trump administration is preparing a plan to reorganize the federal government and move welfare programs into the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), according to Politico. Politico reported that the reorganization plan seeks to move welfare programs, notably food stamps, into HHS, so that such programs are under one roof. Food stamps are currently housed in the Department of Agriculture. The plan could also seek to rename HHS, possibly to include “welfare” in the name, according to the report. The reorganization could face tough odds of coming into fruition, given it would likely require congressional approval. The plan could fit with administration priorities around reforming welfare programs. The administration has sought to impose work requirements on a variety of programs that are currently housed under different departments.
