Expedited Service

You may receive CalFresh benefits in three days if you qualify for “expedited service.”

A household qualifies for expedited service if it:

  • Has less than $150 in monthly income and less than $100 in liquid resources (cash, savings, or checking); OR

  • Has housing costs that are more than its monthly income and liquid resources; OR

  • Is a migrant or seasonal farm worker who is destitute

If you don't qualify for "expedited service" the county office has 30 days to process your application.
