Paragraph 2 of the notice stated:
Specifically, the matching activities will permit the following eligibility determinations:
(2) The California Department of Social Services will be able to determine eligibility status of aliens applying for or receiving benefits under the TANF (“Temporary Assistance for Needy Families”) program, and upon the submission of favorable cost-benefit data to the Department of Justice (DOJ) Data Integrity Board, will also be able to determine eligibility status of non-TANF Food Stamp applicants and recipients.

Based on that data, the Board has approved verifications of immigration status for non-TANF Food Stamp applicants and recipients under the subject computer matching agreement.
