The Golden State Grant is part of California’s recent COVID-19 relief bill and provides direct aid to those most impacted by the pandemic. It provides a one-time $600 state supplementary payment (SSP) grant to SSI seniors and people with disabilities, which will help meet the high costs SSI recipients are struggling to pay during COVID. It also provides a one-time $600 grant for seniors and people with disabilities who receive Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants (CAPI).
Paper checks are being mailed out to SSI/SSP and CAPI recipients starting the week of May 24th.
