Who’s eligible?

Citizens and most legal residents with low incomes are eligible. Undocumented immigrants are usually not eligible, but can apply for their children who are legal residents or U.S. citizens. In California, people who receive SSI/SSP will not qualify for CalFresh until Summer 2019, though other household members may qualify now.

Call us at 1-800-984-3663 to find out if you or someone in your household is eligible.

Even if you’ve applied before, laws have changed, so apply again.
