How Do I?

How do I find my county’s eligibility allocation?

Each year, CMSP publishes an All County Letter (ACL).  The ACL provides a table with each county’s eligibility administration allocation, any documented expenditures, and the allocation excess over expenditure (if any) for that fiscal year.

How do I know if someone is eligible?

Eligibility for CMSP is processed in the two eligibility determination systems – CalWIN and C-IV.  CMSP is the “program of last resort”.  Therefore, an applicant must be proven ineligible for all other programs (such as Medi-Cal) before qualifying for CMSP.

How do I view the latest CMSP Eligibility Training?

The CMSP Eligibility Training provides counties with updates on CMSP’s eligibility criteria and application process. You can find a copy of the CMSP Eligibility Training slides and a recording of the training under Trainings on the Eligibility Forms + Eligibility Manual page.
