Assistance for Furloughed Federal Employees

Federal Employees affected by the government shutdown of 2018-2019 are eligible to receive assistance from feedSCV in the form of grocery gift cards to local supermarkets, to help get through the challenge that goes with an uncertain time.

Applicants who qualify will receive funds via a prepaid gift card to a local supermarket chain. Households of 1-2 will be eligible to receive up to $100/week, households of 3 or more will be eligible to receive up to $250/week during the shutdown beginning the week of January 14, 2019. Funds are subject to availability and feedSCV may discontinue the assistance at any time without notice.

To qualify, applicants must be an employee of the United States Government who has been furloughed or required to report to work unpaid. Applicants must be residents of the Santa Clarita Valley.*

To be eligible to receive assistance, applicants must provide a copy of their most recent pay stub verifying their unpaid status with the federal government, as well as their 2017 Federal Tax Return, demonstrating total household income.
