CFPA's Latest White Paper:
Opportunity to Boost Senior Participation in CalFresh"
With the recent
passage of AB 69, California has a prime opportunity to improve senior
participation in CalFresh. This white paper outlines a model for AB 69
implementation, set for July 2012. Using best practices from other states, and
taking into account California's unique cashout policy, this white paper
explores potential CalFresh enrollment among Social Security recipients over 60
years of age. Through a combination of data sharing, federal waivers, and
simplified enrollment, AB 69 can raise awareness and increase CalFresh
participation among seniors.
