Dear Program Operator:

There has been a presidential disaster declaration in a number of counties across the state of California. The California Department of Education (CDE) is assisting the California Department of Social Services, (CDSS) to share information about Disaster CalFresh food benefit services. Families in Santa Clara County are now eligible for Disaster CalFresh benefits.

The application process for Disaster CalFresh benefits is a two-phase process. First, families in Santa Clara County must preregister for Disaster CalFresh benefits by calling or texting 916-848-6424 between Monday, October 26 and Friday, October 30. Those families that have preregistered will be contacted by their local counties to complete the application and interview process between Monday, November 2 and Friday, November 6 or Monday, November 9 and Tuesday, November 10. Attached, please find this information in an easy to use (and share) flowchart; a similar flowchart will be available in Spanish soon.

To assist with community outreach, the CDSS has announced the availability of new Disaster CalFresh outreach materials.  In addition to the attached flowchart, more materials will soon be available on the CDSS Disaster CalFresh Outreach Materials web page at https://cdss.ca.gov/inforesources/cdss-programs/calfresh/disaster-response/outreach-materials. Please monitor this website for materials as it will be updated routinely. Items that will be available include:

  • Outreach materials focusing on preregistration (English and Spanish)
    • Disaster CalFresh Eligibility Flow Chart Visual Tool
    • Applying for Disaster CalFresh in 1, 2, 3 Visual Tool
    • Flyer (lived or worked in impacted county)
    • Flyer (students)
    • Flyer (all Californians – Immigrants/Noncitizens)
    • Social Media Postings (4 visuals)
    • Disaster CalFresh Frequently Asked Questions Sheet
    • Standard Application Materials

 

The CDE requests that program operators share these resources with families to ensure that they can access these Disaster CalFresh benefits.

Earned Income Tax Credit Information Act Communication

Based on your annual earnings, you may be eligible to receive the Earned Income Tax Credit from the Federal Government (Federal EITC). The Federal EITC is a refundable federal income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The Federal EITC has no effect on certain welfare benefits. In most cases, Federal EITC payments will not be used to determine eligibility for Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, food stamps, low-income housing, or most Temporary Assistance For Needy Families payments. Even if you do not owe federal taxes, you must file a federal tax return to receive the Federal EITC. Be sure to fill out the Federal EITC form in the Federal Income Tax Return Booklet. For information regarding your eligibility to receive the Federal EITC, including information on how to obtain the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Notice 797 or any other necessary forms and instructions, contact the IRS by calling 1-800-829-3676 or through its website at www.irs.gov.

      You may also be eligible to receive the California Earned Income Tax Credit (California EITC) starting with the calendar year 2015 tax year. The California EITC is a refundable state income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families. The California EITC is treated in the same manner as the Federal EITC and generally will not be used to determine eligibility for welfare benefits under California law. To claim the California EITC, even if you do not owe California taxes, you must file a California income tax return and complete and attach the California EITC Form (FTB 3514). For information on the availability of the credit eligibility requirements and how to obtain the necessary California forms and get help filing, contact the Franchise Tax Board at 1-800-852-5711 or through its website at www.ftb.ca.gov.

 

For additional information, refer to the IRS EITC web page at https://www.irs.gov/credits-deductions/individuals/earned-income-tax-credit or the California EITC web page at https://www.ftb.ca.gov/file/personal/credits/california-earned-income-tax-credit.html.

 If you have questions regarding this subject, please contact the IRS by phone at 800-829-3676 or through its website at www.irs.gov. You can also contact the Franchise Tax Board by phone at 800-852-5711 or through its website at www.ftb.ca.gov
