CalFresh (formerly known as Food Stamps) counts most types of income to determine if a household is eligible.

Most households must have a total gross monthly income less than or equal to 200% of the federal poverty level, to be potentially eligible for CalFresh.

  • Gross monthly income means a household’s total income before excluding deductions allowed under the program.
  • Deductions are expenses that are subtracted from the household’s monthly gross income when determining eligibility and the amount of CalFresh benefits that will be received monthly.

For October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015, the monthly income limits are:
