Cash Assistance

Salaams Community Members, I wanted to share a great resource that is available to the community to share anyone that may benefit, CalFresh program currently has a intake interview waiver (no interview needed for benefits) through May 31 to get the CalFresh card to requesters by three days. The CalFresh reporting waiver expires in mid-June. Applicants can qualify for 3 day Expedited Service if: your household makes less than $150 in monthly income and has less than $100 on hand right now; or your household’s combined monthly income and money on hand are less than your household’s combined monthly rent and utilities, or you are a migrant or seasonal farm worker and have less than $100 on hand right now. For example a Family of 5 people may receive $768 in benefits for food.
