The pandemic has resulted in economic crises for American residents, particularly for middle and low-income households. And another economic issue occurred, affecting the supply chain in the first quarter of last year. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and sanctions imposed on Russian oil imports sent the economy into a tailspin.

Every state has to face its issues, notably California, which has become the most expensive state to fill up your car with gas, with prices reaching all-time highs. The Federal Reserve intervened, introducing a series of interest rate increases that acted as a brake on the runaway inflation rate. While gas prices continue to fall, America remains in a cost-of-living crisis, with interest rate hikes now putting the economy on the verge of a recession. Several residents have turned to welfare programs for assistance in meeting their basic living expenses. One of California’s welfare programs is the General Assistance program.

General Assistance (GA) is a California program that provides monetary assistance to residents in Almeda County who are considered impoverished adults, emancipated minors, and unable to financially sustain themselves. It is crucial to remember that GA is not a welfare program and that the money given to eligible individuals is considered a loan. Up to $336 per month is the allotted allowance for single individuals. While couples are given up to $548 per month.
