HSA Advisory CalFresh Benefits for March Issued on March 1

CalFresh benefits for March were issued on a single day, Friday, March 1, 2019, for most households.

Normally, CalFresh nutrition benefits are issued from the first through tenth of each month. The single-day issuance of March benefits is a one-time event. A single-day issuance was approved by the state to lessen the gap in food assistance caused by the early issuance of February benefits due to the partial federal government shutdown.

CalFresh clients can check their EBT card balance for issuance of March benefits beginning on the first of the month. HSA will continue all other CalFresh operations as usual.

CalFresh benefits for April: At this time, the state plans to issue April 2019 benefits on the usual staggered cycle of the first through the tenth of the month. Visit our website or contact our customer service centers for updates.

HSA continues to closely monitor the situation in Washington D.C. and work with partners at the state level to help CalFresh benefits stay available without interruption.
