California Low-Cost Auto Outreach

What We Do  /  Equity  /  California Low-Cost Auto Outreach

Furthering Our Basic Needs Efforts on California Community College Campuses

Meeting basic needs is a multidimensional challenge for college students. Basic needs not only include food and housing but mental health, sleep hygiene, and transportation. Expenses other than tuition can account for more than college tuition costs. To holistically address our students' basic needs, the California Department of Insurance and the Foundation for California Community Colleges (FoundationCCC) are partnering to bring awareness to the California Low-Cost Auto Insurance program. In a collaborative effort, FoundationCCC's student ambassadors and select campus partners will conduct peer-to-peer outreach and a social media campaign to promote low-cost auto insurance for students and communities.

The California Low-Cost Auto Insurance (CLCA) program is a state-sponsored program that makes auto insurance affordable. CLCA is designed to provide income-eligible affordable rates as a way to meet California’s mandatory insurance law. 

To see if you qualify, you must have a valid California driver’s license including an AB60 license for undocumented students, own a vehicle valued at $25,000 or less, have a good driving record, and live in a low-income household. In addition, if you are a CalFresh or Medi-Cal recipient, you may be eligible for low-cost auto insurance.

Resources available:

  • Physical toolkit sent to colleges
  • Digital toolkit available online

Social Media Resources and Digital Toolkit Materials

The Foundation for California Community Colleges (FoundationCCC) is partnering with the California Department of Insurance to provide students with information on how to access affordable insurance. FoundationCCC has developed California Low-Cost Auto Insurance outreach materials that you can use to promote this resource to students on your campus. The materials include digital postcards, social media images, and example copy for posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
