The Texas Center for Child and Family Studies and Monarch Family Services are honored to partner with the organizations distributing Young Adult Pandemic Aid to adults who have aged out of foster care. You are filling out this application because you think you might be eligible for federal funds. Before you go any further, there are two eligibility requirements that all applicants must meet in order to fill out this application: 
  1. You must have aged out of the foster care system in Texas.  
  2. You must have been between 18 and 26 years old (up to your 27th birthday) between 4/30/20 and 9/30/21 when you had financial needs that qualify for assistance. 

If you have questions about either of these requirements but still think you might be eligible, go ahead and fill out this form. Eligibility will be verified by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services who has the ultimate say on whether an applicant meets these requirements or not.   
The application will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Please reach out to if you have questions or concerns about this application.  
Thank you for your interest!
