CalFresh households have been able to access increased purchasing power with the emergency allotments. However with the end of emergency allotments, benefits will revert to a household's calculated benefit allotment. This means that households of 1 could go from receiving $281 back to $23 in benefits. This impact will not be felt until April 2023.
The 2023 Consolidated Appropriations Act signed into law on December 29, 2022 ended federal authority to issue Emergency Allotments effective February 28, 2023. This means that regardless of the Federal or State Public Health Emergency, new federal law sunsets Emergency Allotments effective February 28, 2023 and there will not be a 30-day transition month.
Currently: January’s CalFresh emergency allotments will be available to customers on February 5 (CalSAWS) and February 12 (CalWIN).
