SB 982: CalWORKs: grant amount (2017 - 2018)


Current law requires the amount of cash aid paid each month to CalWORKs recipients to be determined by deducting the family’s income, as specified, from specified sums, as adjusted for cost-of- living increases. Current law prohibits the amount of cash aid paid each month from exceeding those sums, as adjusted for cost-of-living increases, plus any allowance for recurring special needs, as specified. This bill would change the sums from which the family’s income is to be deducted to determine the amount of cash aid paid each month, and would prohibit the amount of cash aid from being more than those specified sums or less than other specified sums.
