State of California Executive Order Extending Eligibilty Period for Safety Net Services

Governor Newsom Issues Executive Order to Protect Ongoing Safety Net

Services for Most Vulnerable Californians During COVID-19 Outbreak


Issued: Wednesday, March 18, 2020

Taking action to ensure that California’s most vulnerable residents can continue to receive health care, food assistance and in-home supportive services in a timely manner during the COVID-19 outbreak, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order today to extend the eligibility period for important safety net services.

“These social safety net programs are so important for families — especially during this crisis,” said Governor Newsom. “We don’t want Californians who rely on these services to lose them.”

The order waives eligibility re-determinations for 90 days for Californians who participate in:

· Medi-Cal health coverage

· CalFresh food assistance

· CalWORKS

· Cash Assistance for Immigrants; and

· In-Home Supportive Services

The change will allow current recipients of these safety net programs to continue receiving them without interruption.

The executive order also waives certain provisions of the Bagley-Keene Act.

The Governor’s full executive order can be found  here.
