    Note: Effective with the April 2021 Emergency Allotments issued in May 2021, all active CalFresh households will receive a minimum of $95 in Emergency Allotment benefits.Important Information for New Applicants and Current CalFresh Customers!

    Temporary Student Rule Change:

    CalFresh eligibility has been temporarily expanded to:

    College students who are eligible to state or federal work study at their colleges. It is not required that a student be approved for work study and anticipate working. Verification of Work Study eligibility may include, but is not limited to, a letter from the financial aid office or a completed work study verification form confirming work study eligibility; and

    College students who are determined by the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) to have a zero dollar Expected Family Contribution (EFC) for the current school year. Verification of a zero dollar EFC may include, but is not limited to, a letter from CSAC confirming a zero dollar EFC for the current school year, a student’s Student Aid Report, or a financial aid offer letter.

    A student who is applying, recertifying, or being added to an existing CalFresh household, must be attending school during the summer term to meet the Work-Study Eligibility Exemption during the summer term.

    The EFC for a student during a school year is from July 1 through June 30. Unlike the Work-Study Eligibility Exemption, the $0 Exemption is not dependent on whether the student is attending school during the summer term. For example, a student who has a $0 EFC on their 2021-22 FAFSA would “be a $0 EFC Student” from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022.

    Still have questions? Read this Questions and Answers fact sheet.

    If you meet either of the above conditions, apply for CalFresh today!

    Interview Waivers:

    Initial Certification and Recertification Interviews are not required if all of the following requirements are fulfilled:

    If a complete application is received and it has been determined that the information provided on the application is not questionable or no further clarification is needed,

    If the identity of the applicant/participant is verified, and

    If there is no mandatory verification missing.

    However, if the County determines that the information provided is questionable or requires additional clarification, an interview will be required.

    Interview waivers are in effect until June 30, 2022.

    Young children are eligible for P-EBT 2.0 if between October 1, 2020, and May 31, 2021, they were:

    Benefit increases because of COVID-19

    The Families First Coronavirus Response Act authorized emergency Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits because of COVID-19.

    Before April, 2021, CalFresh households already receiving the maximum allotment did not receive an emergency allotment.  Starting in April, 2021, households that had not receive at least $95 in increase benefits through emergency allotments during COVID-19 will receive emergency allotments such that they receive at least a $95 emergency allotment. [USDA Press Release No. 0064/21, April 1, 2021; ACWDL, April 16, 2021.]

    The Consolidated Appropriations Act increases CalFresh allotments by 15% for the period January 1, 2021 through June 30, 2021.  [ACIN I-11-21.] This increase in benefits must be excluded when calculating the amount of an overissuance against a household.  [Id.]  For January 2021, the benefit increase will be issued on February 7, 2021.  [Id.]  The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 extends the 15% increase in benefits to September 30, 2021.  [ACIN I-24-21.]  The 15% increase ended on September 30, 2021. [ACIN I-78-21.]

    The Families First Coronavirus Response Act also authorized additional nutrition benefits in an amount equivalent to what a family loses because who are no longer in school are no longer receiving free or reduced cost meals through the school.  California is calling this program Pandemic EBT (P-EBT).  These benefits are separate from the CalFresh program.

    The benefits will be issued on an EBT card that is mailed by the California Department of Social Services to people who are eligible.  Children who receive CalFresh or Medi-Cal will automatically receive P-EBT. Families with children who applied at their school to receive free or reduced school meals must apply online for P-EBT.  The online application will be available at ca.p-ebt.org/en/ until July 15, 2020.  For most families, the benefit will be $365 per child.  The benefit will be less for families that applied for CalFresh or Medi-Cal after March 15, 2020.  [All County Welfare Directors Letter, May 7, 2020.]  Families who applied for P-EBT but benefits were not issued should get a notice from the California Department of Social Services by email.  Families who either were denied (regardless of whether they received the notice) or think they should have received P-EBT but did not can appeal using this form.  Appeals must be filed by August 17, 2020.

    Health Care

    Keep your Medi-Cal contact information current. Make sure your county has your current address, phone number, and email address – especially if you moved since 2020. Later this year, counties will start contacting people to help them renew their Medi-Cal. If they cannot contact you, your Medi-Cal may end so you want to make sure they have your current information. Find your local county at this link.

    COVID-19 vaccines are free. Click here for more information. All health plans must cover vaccine administration for free, and Medi-Cal covers vaccine administration for free.

    Diagnostic testing for COVID-19 is covered at no cost for all Californians. You will need to go to a state testing site, one run by your county, or get a test at a medical provider that can enroll you in a special Medi-Cal program for people without insurance. You can contact your county public health department, local clinic, and medical provider to receive information about your options for free testing.

    There is a conflict between the California regulation governing health plans for COVID-19 diagnostic testing and federal testing requirements under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act and the CARES Act. This conflict in current law might result in a health plan billing you for testing. If this happens and you want assistance with reviewing the bill, please contact Helen Tran at htran[at]wclp.org or (213) 235-2638.

    Everyone is encouraged to seek care if they are sick, regardless of income or immigration status. For more information about your right to health care, visit the Health Consumer Alliance’s COVID-19 information site.

    Local Dataset – covers eviction laws, including those at the county and local level, in 30 local jurisdictions in effect as of January 1, 2021
