Post Aid Services include, but are not limited to, childcare, mileage reimbursement, tools or other work-related or approved costs and referrals to other agencies as needed.

Post Aid Services are not an entitlement, but are based on a budget of your needs and how the services will help you to maintain and advance in your job. You are eligible for up to twelve (12) months of services from the date you become employed, so long as you become employed within twelve (12) months of your CalWORKs case discontinuance date.

If you are receiving Post Aid Services to help with childcare, you will be referred for childcare assistance for your employment hours for up to two (2) years, which begins the first month your CalWORKs case discontinues.
