Napa County Health and Human Services Agency officials were
notified in an e-mail from DSS Director Will Lightbourne that “based on
available federal funding and information we have been provided by federal
agencies, we anticipate there should be no disruption in benefits and
payments in October in the absence of the [continuing resolution]," he said.
will continue monitoring the situation and will advise
you as more information is available,” Lightbourne added.
That means that Napa County clients of CalWORKS, general assistance, WIC (Women, Infants Children), CalFresh food assistance, Medi-Cal, Workforce Napa, alcohol and drug programs, child welfare services, older adult services and mental health programs will continue to receive benefits, at least through October.“We are closely watching the situation as it develops, so if any of our clients are in danger of not receiving some or all of their benefits, we can know as quickly as possible,” said Alice Hughey, HHSA acting director.
Those who are receiving services should contact their program contact person directly to ask questions about their specific circumstances.
