This presentation will address some of the benefits and assistance available
to teenagers, young adults and young families, approximately ages 16-22. Benefit
areas covered will include cash assistance, Food Stamps, Medicaid and housing
resources for teens and young adults who are living on their own or aging out of
foster care. The session will also cover housing resources for families
struggling to reunify with children in foster care, including eligibility rules
and advocacy strategies. The treatment of benefit areas will include coverage of
special rules regarding eligibility for assistance, household composition, and
circumstances when or if the young adult may be treated as a separate household.
This presentation is intended for individuals who already have some familiarity
and basic understanding of benefits eligibility and filing units.
