Extending Foster Care to Age 21: Implications for Providers, Impact on Budgets
One important provision of the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act signed into law in 2008 extended federal support for keeping foster youth in care until age 21 with the goal of improving educational and health-related outcomes.
This extension of care has significant implications for services providers as they plan adaptations to their programs for a group of older youth who need services that will help prepare them for independence. It has implications as well for the budgets of state agencies and program providers. Join us on May 12 for a discussion on extending foster care to age 21: implications for providers, impact on budgets.
