Governor Issues Order For Safety-Net Services
Sacramento, CA — The latest Executive Order from Governor Gavin Newsom is designed to help lower-income residents who must reapply for safety net services.
The order waives eligibility re-determinations for 90 days for Californians who participate in Medi-Cal health coverage, CalFresh food assistance, CalWORKS, Cash Assistance for Immigrants and In-Home Supportive Services.
Newsom says, “These social safety net programs are so important for families — especially during this crisis. We don’t want Californians who rely on these services to lose them.”
It will allow current recipients to continue to receive the services without interruption.
