ABAWD Time Limit Rule

The CalFresh time limit for able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs) was reimposed September 1, 2018 in three California counties, and will likely continue to affect new areas in September 2019 and beyond.

This page serves as a resource for administrators and local partners to share strategies and resources to mitigate the loss of benefits among CalFresh participants with ABAWD status.
