Now What? Tips for Advocates Implementing the Supporting Foster Youth & Families through the Pandemic Act

The Supporting Foster Youth and Families through the Pandemic Act (H.R. 7947) became law as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act on December 27, 2020 (PL 116-260). This law should bring significant emergency relief to young people in and from foster care. The law will help young people by: prohibiting a termination of services to youth even if they reach age 21, requiring states to provide re-entry into care until a youth reaches age 22, and providing $400 million additional Chafee funds. Now that these important provisions are effective, the work of implementation must occur! On January 13th, 2021, FosterClub and Juvenile Law Center co-hosted a webinar for advocates that included the following: - summary of the law - tips for advocates to use in their states to help ensure young people receive support as soon as possible - strategies for advocate (including young people) involvement in the implementation and oversight process.
