COVID-19 CalFresh emergency allotment for March 2021

California has been approved to issue an emergency allotment of CalFresh for March, 2021, so long as the COVID-19 public health emergency remains in place at some point in the month of March.  The emergency allotment will be issued on April 18, 2021 to raise each household’s monthly CalFresh allotment to the maximum allowable for the household size.

Moving forward, emergency allotments may be approved by FNS on a month-to-month basis until the Secretary of Health and Human Services rescinds the public health emergency. (ACWDL, February 25, 2021.)
