EOPS Students Now Eligible For CalFresh

The California Department of Social Services has issued All County Le​tter 15-70, which clarifies that students enrolled in Extended Opportunity Programs and Service (EOPS) qualify for an exemption that makes them eligible to receive CalFresh, formerly known as food stamps. According to the letter, state policy prohibits students enrolled at least half-time, from receiving food stamps unless they comply with certain eligibility requirements.  The ACL clarifies that enrollment in EOPS qualifies an otherwise CalFresh-eligible student for the CalFresh exemption.
This is a positive development for the over 75,000 students enrolled in EOPS in California who attend community college. EOPS assists eligible low-income and educationally disadvantaged students to achieve academic success by offering support services to enhance persistence, retention, graduation and transfer goals. In addition to EOPS, the letter specifies that students enrolled in the Job Training Partnership Act are also qualifies an otherwise CalFresh-eligible student for the CalFresh exemption.
