6.29.17 CFPA heartily celebrates the success of our initiative to provide struggling Californians living without safe drinking water some relief through supplemental CalFresh benefits! The $5 million investment in this initiative is expected to reach approximately 40,000 residents living in areas hardest hit by poor water quality and ongoing drought impacts.

Including the CalFresh-Safe Water Initiative, CFPA and our Drinking Water Coalition partners successfully advocated for more than $22 million in new investments to provide low-income Californians with safe water. Learn more about the Drinking Water Coalition efforts. link

Stay tuned as we work to ensure that this initiative is implemented in the best way possible. link
