During the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), Medi-Cal beneficiaries have stayed enrolled in the program. If your contact information has changed, please update it today online at the BenefitsCal website or by contacting us at 707-995-4200. This may help you keep your Medi-Cal coverage after the COVID-19 PHE ends.
CalFresh Emergency Allotments which provided a minimum of $95 for CalFresh Households are ending.
Beginning April 2023, your CalFresh benefits will return to the regular amount. Your regular amount is the amount put onto your EBT card between the 1st and 10th of each month. Your regular benefits are based on your circumstances, including your household size, income, and deductions.
This is a mass change that affects all CalFresh households in California due to Federal regulations and is not considered a reduction to the approved regular CalFresh benefit amount. A state hearing judge cannot order payment of Emergency Allotments after they have stopped.

Los Beneficios de emergencia de CalFresh que proporcionaron un mínimo de $ 95 se van a terminar.
A partir de abril de 2023, sus beneficios de CalFresh volverán a la cantidad normal. Su beneficio regular es el monto que se deposita en su tarjeta EBT entre el 1 y el 10 de cada mes. Sus beneficios regulares se basan en sus circunstancias, incluido el tamaño de su hogar, los ingresos y las deducciones.
Este es un cambio que afecta todos los hogares de CalFresh en California debido a las regulaciones federales y no se considera una reducción del monto del beneficio de CalFresh regular aprobado. Un juez de audiencia no puede ordenar un pago de beneficios de emergencia después de que se terminen.

Safely Surrendered Baby Law
The Safely Surrendered Baby Law provides a safe alternative to abandonment of a new born baby. The intent of the law is to provide freedom from prosecution and maintenance of confidentiality for the individual safely surrendering a baby within 72 hours of birth at a designated safe surrender site.
A New statewide toll-free hotline, 877-222-9723 (877-BABYSAF), provides safe surrender site locations throughout the state. In addition to the hotline the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) also offers safely surrendered baby publications that provide information about the law. These materials, as well as additional information about the law, may be accessed at the Safely Surrendered Baby Program page.
