Do I have to do welfare-to-work activities during the COVID-19 pandemic?

It depends.  Many activities are not being offered because of COVID.  The counties should broadly grant “good cause” requests that allow you to continue to receive aid and not complete welfare-to-work requirements.  If your county sanctions you for non-compliance, please contact our office for assistance.  Counties have broad discretion to allow you to fix your sanction by signing a “cure plan” to continue receiving benefits. 


In certain circumstances, you can still receive child care even if you are unable to follow your welfare-to-work plan.
