Pandemic Emergency Assistance Fund (PEAF) for CalWORKs Families

The PEAF payment is intended to provide financial relief to all eligible CalWORKs families.


CalWORKs families (assistance units) who have an active CalWORKs case, as determined by the Statewide Automated Welfare System on 07/10/2021, will receive the PEAF payment.


The PEAF payment is a one-time $640 payment automatically sent to eligible CalWORKs families. For more information on PEAF eligibility and the disbursement process, visit our resources page.
