All current recipients and eligible applicants of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), known in California as CalFresh, will receive monthly benefits for February more than two weeks early. Due to the prolonged federal government shutdown.
In order to serve CalFresh recipients within a reduced timeframe, Contra Costa County’s Employment and Human Services Department (EHSD) is moving quickly to issue February benefits between Tuesday, January 15, and Sunday, January 20.
