Homeless Assistance is included in this program. CalWORKs is administered following Federal and State regulations.
Cash Aid Program for Immigrants The Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants (CAPI) is a State Only cash assistance program for specified aged, blind, or disabled legal immigrants. These immigrants are not eligible for the Federal SSI/SSP program due solely to their immigrant status. CAPI is not linked to any other public assistance program. CAPI cases are centrally located in the Ontario TAD office.
Child Care Program The TAD Child Care program provides child care reimbursements to providers on behalf of current CalWORKs recipients who are in an approved work or training program. Payments are reimbursed for child care services provided and are paid directly to the provider. The Child Care program is funded by the California Department of Social Services.
Food Stamp Program The Food Stamp Program is a nutritional assistance program designed to help single people and families with little or no income to buy food. Food Stamp benefits are issued on an EBT Card that is used just like a bank card at most local food stores. The Food Stamp Program is a Federal State funded program.
Foster Care Program The purpose of the Foster Care Program is to provide financial assistance for children in need of substitute parenting who have been removed from the home by either the Department of Children’s Services (DCS) or the Probation Department.
The Foster Care Case Worker is responsible for determining federal, state, or county funding; the payment is the responsibility of the Transitional Assistance Department (TAD).
