The following resources can assist you in accessing new opportunities that may be available to you with the removal of a felony from your record:
Benefits Cal: This site connects you to applications for Medi-Cal, County Medical Services Program (CMSP), CalFresh (formerly known as Food Stamps) and California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) benefits in California.
Roadmap to Reentry Guide: The “Roadmap to Reentry” Guide, produced by Root & Rebound, is the first of its kind in the United States, an in-depth legal resource for people struggling through reentry and those who support them. It covers nine areas of law and civic life: housing, public benefits, parole & probation, education, understanding & cleaning up your criminal record, ID & voting, family & children, court-ordered debt, and employment. With a California focus, the guide is written in simple language and meant to be used as a resource that people can turn to whenever they encounter challenges along the way. The guide has a user-friendly table of contents that people can use to quickly and easily navigate to the chapters they need.
