Announced Monday, the California Department of Social Services plans to hand out $25 million in cash payments to nearly 2,000 residents facing challenging conditions, specifically targeting those who are pregnant or aging out of extended foster care. Individuals in the program will receive unconditional and regular payments of $600 to $1200 a month for 12 to 18 months.
