County Medical Services Program

The County Medical Services Program (CMSP) provides medical benefits to needy adults who do not qualify for the state's Medi-Cal program. Services are similar to those received in the Medi-Cal program. The funds support health services to people who meet the qualifications.

General Assistance

General Assistance provides repayable cash aid and in-kind aid for the subsistence and needs of the county's disadvantaged citizens.


The CalFresh Program utilizes food stamps to help low-income people and families buy the food they need for good health. Benefits are provided on an electronic card that is used like an ATM card and accepted at most grocery stores.


Medi-Cal provides medical benefits and health care coverage for qualifying persons who live in California and who have income and resources below established limits.
