Important COVID-19 Information

    • FHEPS: Due to a change in state law which was recently signed by the Governor, starting February 16, 2022, HRA will increase the Family Homelessness and Eviction Prevention Supplement (FHEPS) payment standards. Visit our FHEPS page for more information and relevant forms.

    • Recertifications: If you receive a Cash Assistance or SNAP recertification notice by mail or an ACCESS HRA alert that you need to recertify, you must submit your recertification or your benefits will stop. You can use ACCESS HRA, fax, mail, or a drop box at open centers to submit your recertification. Please make sure that we have your correct phone number. You can check it and update it on ACCESS HRA website or the ACCESS HRA Mobile App. Learn about the ways you can submit your recertification and supporting documents.

    • CA six-month mailer/SNAP periodic report: Starting in April 2022, all Cash Assistance and SNAP households that are due to return either a CA Six-Month Mailer or a SNAP Periodic Report must do so to keep getting benefits. Households who failed to return their mailer/report in January, February or March 2022 did not have their case closed for failing to return the mailer/report.

    • Medicaid: Medicaid cases with authorization ending in March 2020 through December 2020 and January 2021 through October 2022 will be automatically extended.
