General Assistance

General Assistance (GA) Program

Every county in California is required to provide relief and support to all residents who are not supported by their own means, by friends or relatives, by other public funds, or by other assistance programs. General Assistance is the program that provides temporary assistance to individuals who are not eligible to federal or state-funded cash assistance. Each county's program is established by its own Board of Supervisors. Its policies and regulations are subject to change by the Board of Supervisors depending upon the funds available to the program.
