To assist young adults in foster care through the COVID-19 pandemic, the Biden Administration released $400 million to distribute to young adults who have experienced care. Utah must distribute $2 million by September 2022. These pandemic relief funds are meant to land directly in the hands of youth and young adults in the system.
After September 30, 2021, young adults over 23 years old and those whose cases ended in reunification will no longer be eligible for these funds.
