Would require the creation of a standardized state form to verify the work/study eligibility of CA college students so that they might more easily receive CalFresh (Food Stamp) Benefits. Many University of California, State, and Community College students in work study are unaware that they meet criteria to qualify for CalFresh. Even if they are aware, it can be difficult to acquire the right form since many colleges and universities use different forms for the same student eligibility determination purposes. The current confusion about forms also makes it more difficult for county staff who process CalFresh applications.
