The General Assistance (GA) program provides assistance for all eligible low-income residents of Napa County who are unemployed or unable to work. We provide short-term financial assistance in the form of a loan for adults without children that will help an individual to either find employment or obtain support from another source.

CAPI is a program that provides cash assistance to aged, blind or disabled non-citizens who have been denied Supplemental Security Income/State Supplemental Payment (SSI/SSP) solely due to their immigration status.
