A Title IV-B Child and Family Services State Plan (CFSP) was developed in 2009 for 2010-2014.
In each of the four subsequent years after the completion of the five-year plan, DFPS is required to complete an annual update that is technically known as the Annual Progress and Services Report (APSR). The APSR is required for the state to receive its federal allocation authorized under Title IV-B of the Social Security Act, Subparts 1 and 2, and the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA). The update also gives states an opportunity to apply for funding to support the Chafee Foster Care Independence Program. The annual update must be submitted by June 30 of each year.

Texas DFPS provides Annual Progress and Services Reports for Chafee Foster Care Independence and state-paid program services and benefits through its Transitional Living Services Program, which incorporates Preparation for Adult Living, Education and Training Vouchers, and other related services in support of young people sixteen to 22 years of age, and in some cases 23, who are currently or formerly in foster care, or transitioning out of care.
