Public Benefits

Those eligible for public benefits in California include chronically homeless people with disabilities, female-headed, and lower income families with children that disproportionately identify as female households and Black or Latina.

PILP breaks down systemic barriers to the equitable disbursement of public benefits, primarily focused on CalFresh; CalWORKs; General Assistance/Relief; and other funds targeted to helping unhoused people, people with disabilities, immigrants, foster youth, and disaster survivors can meet their basic needs.
