NAPA, CA - During the COVID-19 pandemic, households receiving CalFresh benefits received temporary emergency allotments or increases of at least $95 to their regular CalFresh benefit amounts. The emergency allotments were designed to help individuals and families facing pandemic hardships meet basic food needs.
CalFresh Emergency Allotments will end the month of February 2023 under the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023. This means a final Emergency Allotment will be issued in March 2023 resulting in less CalFresh beginning in April 2023. In Napa County, this will affect approximately 4,892 households. The reduction in benefits may be significant for some individuals and families.
Regular CalFresh benefits will not change for households as long as they remain eligible. The regular benefit amounts are based on circumstances, including household size, income and deductions. If you would like to apply for CalFresh:
