Benefits CalWIN is the latest online tool to help Solano County residents access food and medical assistance programs. "We are excited to be able to offer online applications and reporting for struggling individuals and families so they do not have to take time away from work to apply for benefits," said Christiana Smith, Health and Social Services deputy director for employment and eligibility services. The new website, www.benefitscalwin.org, offers a self-screening tool and an interactive online application for Food Stamps and Medi-Cal programs. Current Food Stamps recipients can also submit their quarterly reports and annual renewals online. There is no charge for these services.
