saving on Welfaré

A CalWorks participant (welfare recipient) can save unlimited amounts of money for a downpayment on a home or deposit for an apartment or to start a business.

CW61 must be reviewed with the EW and the money must be in a seperate untoiched account used specifically for that purpose.

It’s now a Senate Bill.

It was proposed and passed because of the families in Shelters who are forced to save money while in shelters – it used to be that if a family had more than $100.00 they could not use the Homeless Assistance from the LA County DPSS.
