In order to apply, all we need is an application with your name, address and a valid signature. Anything else needed to determine eligibility will be reviewed and requested at your interview.
You may receive CalFresh benefits within three days of your application date if you qualify for what is called “expedited service.” A household qualifies for expedited service if it has less than $150 in monthly income and less than $100 in liquid resources (cash, savings or checking) OR has housing costs that are more than its monthly income and liquid resources OR is a migrant or seasonal farm worker who is destitute. Every case is reviewed for expedited services, and it is always OK to ask to have your case reviewed for expedited service processing with an Eligibility Specialist.
