Receive CFAP Expansion Listening Session Notifications


Get notified and join the California Food Assistance Program (CFAP) expansion stakeholder listening sessions hosted by the California Department of Social Services (CDSS). Learn about the CFAP expansion plan and share considerations when working with immigrant communities.

The CDSS listening sessions provide information and seek stakeholder input that will inform the CFAP expansion plan. Currently, the CFAP operates in tandem with CalFresh, offering food benefits to some immigrant populations who would be eligible for CalFresh based on income if not for their immigration status.

However, the current CFAP still excludes many people, including undocumented immigrants. This expansion will be a big lift and requires close collaboration between CDSS and external stakeholders in order to be successful.

These listening sessions will be an opportunity to provide feedback to the planning process, best practices when working with immigrant communities, and identify materials and resources for the newly eligible population.
