As you may be aware, due to the Federal COVID-19 Public Health Emergency declaration ending on May 11, 2023, California will no longer be able to exempt students using the temporary changes to the CalFresh student eligibility rule.
Beginning June 10, 2023, the temporary exemptions will no longer apply to college students who are newly applying for CalFresh.
Beginning July 1, 2023, college students who already get CalFresh benefits should not experience any changes until their next recertification, where their eligibility will be reassessed.
The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) has created outreach materials that address potential questions that CalFresh households may have as the temporary student exemptions come to an end. You can find these materials HERE.
