Apply for CalWORKs

What is CalWORKs?
CalWORKs is a Human Services program that gives cash aid and services to eligible needy California families. The program serves all 58 counties in the state and is operated locally by county welfare departments.
 
If a family has little or no cash and needs housing, food, utilities, clothing or medical care, they may be eligible to receive immediate short-term help. Families that apply and qualify for ongoing assistance receive money each month to help pay for housing, food and other necessary expenses.
 
There are other programs and benefits, such as Homeless Assistance, for which a family may qualify by being on CalWORKs.
