EFAS Program Areas

Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) and CalWORKs
Provides a temporary cash grant, and is available to eligible low-income families. The cash grants are based upon income and resource levels and medical costs are covered through Medi-Cal benefits associated with TANF assistance. Services that are designed to promote self-sufficiency are also provided with cash benefit programs.
Community Outreach Unit
The Community Outreach Unit provides outreach, enrollment assistance, and support to residents of Mendocino County in need of health insurance coverage through Covered California or Medi-Cal, as well as assistance and information related to CalFresh. The unit also works closely with community-based organizations to provide funding, technical assistance, and support with work related to Medi-Cal, Covered California, and CalFresh. The unit is the primary facilitator for the following coalitions: Covered Mendocino, Food For All Mendocino, and Healthy Kids Mendocino.
Cal Fresh (formerly Food Stamps Program)
Available to eligible low-income individuals and families. Food stamps may be used to purchase food in markets that accept food stamps.
Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Program
EBT is the distribution of food stamp benefits with a plastic debit card, making the issuance of state public assistance and federal food stamp benefits faster and easier through the use of electronic transactions.
Medi-Cal and the County Medical Services Program (CMSP)
Payment for medical costs is available to eligible individuals who meet income and resource standards. Payment for medical costs incurred may require a share-of-cost portion based upon household income levels.
CalWORKs Job Services
The CalWORKs Job Services Program provides employment and training services to TANF recipients and applicants to find unsubsidized employment.

Note: All programs and services are not available at all of our office locations. Please contact us to verify available services and office hours.
