CAPI is a program that provides cash assistance for aged, blind, or disabled non-citizens in California who are ineligible for SSI/SSP solely due to their immigration status. A CAPI applicant must apply for SSI/SSP or submit other proof of ineligibility from the Social Security Administration. Payment amounts for CAPI are dependent on the individual's living arrangements, marital status, and income.
A CAPI application may be submitted in person, by mail, fax, or phone. For questions, assistance, or to apply by phone, call 1-800-540-6880. To apply in person, please visit your local TulareWORKs District Office.
