IMPORTANT BENEFITS INFORMATION:
General Assistance (GA) Update

On September 5th, 2023, Alameda County migrated to a new system (CalSAWS) for determining eligibility and processing benefits for health coverage, food, and cash assistance.

Since our conversion to CalSAWS, effective October 1, 2023, some GA recipients may:
• Not have received their grant for the month; or
• Have seen a decrease in their grant amount for the month due to not receiving the housing subsidy

Most of the cases have now been corrected and the impacted clients should have their October benefits available via their normal issuance method. The Social Services Agency (SSA) and the CalSAWS Project moved swiftly to work to identify the issues and correct the issues. Clients whose GA grants were impacted should not experience this problem after Thursday, October 5, 2023.

Additionally, the SSA is working on the remaining cases that did not receive a GA housing subsidy payment. For GA cases where the housing subsidy was not received, the SSA is making this our top priority and diligently working to issue payments for these cases as soon as possible.

If problems persist with GA cases after the above dates, please contact the worker of record.

The Great California is Fast Approaching, October 19th, at 10:19AM!

It is extremely important that everyone, everywhere knows how to protect themselves during an earthquake—whether working from home or the office! The Great California ShakeOut is an opportunity to practice. Are you ready to ‘Drop, Cover, and Hold On’? https://www.shakeout.org/california/

As many of us know, earthquakes in California are not a matter of if, but when. The most recent U.S. Geological Survey reported a 72% probability of a magnitude 6.7 or greater earthquake occurring by the year 2043 in the San Francisco Bay Region.https://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/2016/3020/fs20163020.pdf

The Government and Community Relations (GCR), Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (DPEM) is inviting you to participate in the largest worldwide earthquake drill on October 19 at 10:19AM. The drill will last for one minute where we will Drop, Cover, and Hold On!
