- Monthly gross income plus liquid assets less than the household rent or mortgage plus utility costs; or,
- Be a destitute migrant or seasonal farmworker with liquid assets less than $100. Applications for Medical Assistance and Temporary Cash Assistance may take 30 to 45 days, and Medical

Important Information for Immigrants
Applying for or receiving Food Assistance (SNAP) benefits or Medical Assistance will not affect you or your family members’ immigration status or ability to get permanent resident status (green card). Receiving Temporary Cash Assistance or long term institutional care, such as nursing home benefits might create problems with getting that status, especially if the benefits are your family’s only income.
