Thank you, I'm not collecting any welfare or free housing and I don't know how to apply for that. I just looked up at the food stamps that I might get if I apply for it and it turned out to be around $500 a month ( for a household of 3). I think I'll be eligible for medicaid which might help a bit.I dont' live in NYC, but from everything I've heard, I highly doubt that would be sufficient unless you're also collecting welfare or free housing or something. Really, that's probably insufficient in most large cities at least based on my idea of lifestyle expectations.
Living in NYC on $30k / year? That would be miserable. My aunt lives in Los Angeles and the cost of living by herself is $2500 / month which is about $30,000 a year add/subtract a few hundred dollars.Hello,
I'm applying for a PhD program in NYC. Stipend will be 30,000 a year. Do you think that would be enough for my child, my wife and me to live in NYC?
