California Competes has launched a new tool called the Public Benefit Finder for California Students. This resource is designed to help students discover various public benefits they may be eligible for, providing essential support to alleviate financial burdens and enhance their overall well-being.

By utilizing this tool, students can access information on a range of public benefits available to them, including but not limited to food assistance, housing support, healthcare coverage, and childcare services. Navigating these benefits can significantly improve students' ability to focus on their education without the added stress of financial instability.
