If you are an able-bodied adult you can receive aid for no more than nine months in any 12-month period. Participation in the General Relief (GR) employment and training program, General Relief Opportunities for Work (GROW), is mandatory for able-bodied adults. If you have a verified physical or mental disability you may receive GR with no time limit and are not required to participate in GROW. Upon application, if you have a need for substance use disorder treatment, then you must participate in an approved recovery treatment program as a condition of aid. Most GR participants are eligible for CalFresh and Medi-Cal.
