Unhappy Financial Help for college

Now that I am a single parent, does anyone know if their is any financial support for kids that have a parent that is incarcerated? Any direction or resources would really help.

You may qualify for food stamps and medical insurance. As for college, there are Pell Grants that do not have to be paid back. If you wish to return to college or if you're asking for your children, you may all qualify for a Pell Grant. There is an application (FAFSA): https://fafsa.ed.gov/
