The Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services (DPSS) announces that the full amount of CalFresh benefits for March will be issued on March 1, 2019 to eligible households. The single-day, early issuance is intended to shorten the period between February’s early issuance, which resulted in a gap in food assistance for many low-income individuals and households statewide.
To ensure that the County of Los Angeles’ most vulnerable residents, from low-income households, including seniors, people with disabilities, and children, receive critical CalFresh supplemental nutrition benefits without interruption in the month of February, the Department of Public Social Services has been authorized to issue the February CalFresh benefit to eligible households on January 16, 2019.
