If you receive CalFresh benefits in Stanislaus County, be advised of important changes that could affect you and your family due to the ongoing federal government shutdown.
February CalFresh benefits for most participants will now be issued early, on January 16, 2019, for Stanislaus County residents. This includes the following:
- All clients who do not have a CalFresh report due in January
- Clients who have a CalFresh report due in January and whose report has been received and continuing eligibility has been determined in advance of the early issuance process
If you receive your February CalFresh benefits early, you are encouraged to plan your food budget knowing that there will be a longer period between the early issuance and your next normally scheduled issuance in March. Clients not included in the "early issuance" group will get February food benefits through normal processes and on their normal issuance dates, as long as they are determined eligible.
New applications will continue to be accepted and processed, and expedited services will be available as usual.
