COVID-19 treatment of individual stimulus for CalWORKs and CalFresh

The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) has issued guidance about how the individual stimulus payment is to be treated for purposes of CalWORKs, CalFresh and TCVAP.

Individual stimulus payments are excluded from being considered income in the month received and will not be considered as asset for 12 month following receipt.  (ACWDL, April 15, 2020.)
