Adult family care (Medicaid program) and SSI

Does receiving a taxfree stipend through the Adult Family/Foster Care program (funded by Medicaid in Massachusetts) affect SSI benefits?
Does anyone have any idea?

I'm not too familiar with this program, but it's likely that any funds from this Family Care will not be counted as "income" by SSI.

Per the SSA, "assistance based on need funded by a State or local government" is not counted as income for SSI purposes.

You may want to confirm with the SSA regarding this.
