Does assistance from the H.E.A.T. program qualify you for the low income hunting license? Don't know if that is a welfare program or not...
It reads like this:
Resident Low Income License
Must meet the residency definition. The hunting/trapping/fishing license fee is $5.00 for a resident who is receiving or has received assistance during the preceding six months under any state or federal welfare program to aid the indigent, or has an annual family gross income of less than $8,200 for the year preceding application. Proof of eligibility must be provided on request.
