CARES Act Unemployment Benefits Expire Sept 4, 2021 – What you need to know

September 4, 2021, federal unemployment insurance (UI) benefit programs created under the CARES Act will expire in California and across the states.

Three million+ California workers impacted by expiration of these critical federal programs were notified by the Employment Development Department (EDD). In an effort to support these Californians, EDD is partnering with Covered California, the Department of Housing and Community Development, and the Department of Social Services to promote other vital state-run benefit programs and that can help Californians in need. These include low-cost health care, rent relief and utility aid, and access to food assistance, which have been significantly expanded by the American Rescue Plan and California Comeback Plan

For example, these workers are entitled to over $234 per person per month for food via CalFresh (GetCalFresh.org). They are also eligible for 100 percent rent and utilities via Housing is Key (HousingIsKey.com), as well as free or low-cost coverage for as low as $1 per month for workers who received unemployment benefits through Covered California and Medi-Cal (coveredca.com). EDD recently posted links to these benefits to the on-line accounts of UI recipients, including to GetCalFresh.org, which boosted CalFresh (i.e., SNAP) applications by 108,000 people this summer.
