Types of Funding

General Funds:

Participants are enrolled from the Centralized Eligibility List (CEL) in rank order according to family size and income. The state median income level and need requirements must be met and current at the time of enrollment. Child care services are not guaranteed and are based on available funding.

Stage 2:

Adult recipients are eligible for Stage 2 funding if they:
  • Meet the state median income level and need requirements
  • Receive cash aid and participate in CalWORKs or their cash aid case has been closed within the last 24 months
  • Are deemed stable by their employment case manager

Stage 3:

Clients who have timed out (cash aid case closed for 24 months) are transferred to Stage 3 funding if they continue to meet the state median income level and need requirements. Child care services are not guaranteed and are based on available funding. We encourage families who are about to time out of Stage 2 to apply on CEL.
