What is the CalFresh Employment & Training Program?

CalFresh Employment & Training (CF E&T) program provides participants with a variety of job training, job placement and education programs that are provided by Alameda County Social Services Agency or community partners.

Any CalFresh recipient who is not also receiving CalWORKs, may volunteer to participate in CalFresh Employment & Training to improve their job and career opportunities.

Alameda County is currently under an ABAWD waiver, however, during periods when the ABAWD waiver is not in effect, participation in this program enables CalFresh recipients who are ABAWDs (Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents) to meet their CalFresh work requirement in order to keep their CalFresh benefits beyond 3 months.
