About this resource

The recent Consolidated Appropriations Act set aside emergency relief for young people with foster care experience who are struggling because of the Pandemic.​ Each state is able to decide how the funds will be applied to the youth in their care.

In Mississippi, there is no specific information about the remaining Pandemic Relief Funds. To find out if there is funding available to you, try calling and speaking with Mississippi CPS staff at 769.823.4608 or 601.502.7429. Or you can reach staff through email at youth@mdcps.ms.gov

PLEASE NOTE:

*Youth from the MS Band of Choctaw Indians or Unaccompanied Refugee minor youth are also eligible

**These funds will no longer be available September 30, 2022. Call to apply ASAP!
