General Relief (“GR”)

General Relief (“GR”) is a Los Angeles County program that helps people who are not eligible for other benefit programs and have almost no money.

GR is a very limited program with many requirements. The maximum grant amount is very low. If you qualify for GR, you are also entitled to Medi-Cal for health care and CalFresh for food.

You apply for all of these programs at your local Department of Public Social Services Offices or online.
