The purpose of this MOU is to clearly identify the roles and responsibilities of each party as they relate to the implementation of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Stamp Program (FSP). The FSP is intended to help state agencies inform low-income households about the availability, eligibility requirements, applications procedures and benefits for the program.
Is this use of the preposition for natural? Is the intended meaning "benefits under the program", "benefits enjoyed by the low-income households enrolled in the program"?
Could it be that the preposition for is used because each of the terms "eligibility requirements", "application procedures" and "benefits" relates to the program? That is, because the authors of the sentence decided to link several terms to a single preposition phrase?
When I try to "hook up" each of these terms to the preposition phrase, this is what I get:
"Availability for the program" looks strange to me. I would use "availability of the program (in a specific location, say)".
"Eligibility requirement for the program" looks okay.
"Application procedures for the program" looks somewhat strange. A natural way would've been, it seems to me, "application procedures for the participation in the program".
"Benefits for the program" looks understandable within the context, but in another context it could've meant "benefits provided to the program" (not to the indigent families, but, say, to the agencies implementing the program)
