Has the County relaxed its rules during COVID?

Yes.  Here are some changes that make it easier for you to get and keep your benefits: 

  • CalWORKs: The County can waive the rules regarding homeless assistance, including granting it more than once in a twelve month period.
  • CalWORKs:  Eligibility for diversion payments even if a family member has “timed out”
  • CalWORKs and CalFresh:  Counties can relax certain application requirements, including requiring proof of residency, identification, and allowing you to reasonably estimate your income. 
  • Welfare-to-Work: Counties can waive requirements if you are unable to meet your hours due to the COVID-19 emergency.
