Yolo County has the third highest poverty rate in the state at 20.6%. Among families with kids living in poverty, those in deepest poverty have children under the age of five. Poverty alleviation programs can exert a powerful impact on health, welfare and development, particularly for children. Accordingly, the Yolo FPRP has been structured to serve families with children under the age of five enrolled in the CalWORKs program. Yolo FPRP specifically targets those participating in CalWORKs HSP, which works to foster housing stability for families experiencing homelessness.
