If you are a young person who experienced foster care AFTER the age of 14, not currently in foster care or ILP, you may qualify for emergency relief. Please note, we are currently waiting to obtain more information about age requirements for pandemic funding above the age of 23. Check back for more information. 

If you left care BEFORE 14, you are likely NOT eligible. 

Fill out the form below, or contact FosterClub at 503-717-1552 for assistance.

As a part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2020, youth who were in care at age 14 are eligible for additional funds as a part of the John H. Chafee Foster Care Independence Program. FosterClub is supporting the state of Oregon in distributing funds.
