About this resource
The recent Consolidated Appropriations Act set aside significant emergency relief for young people with foster care experience who are struggling right now because of the Pandemic. Every state received information from the Federal Government about recommendations for the funds, but each state is able to decide how the funds will be applied to the youth in their care.
In West Virginia, there is no specific information about the remaining pandemic relief funding. To find out if there is funding available to you, try the following:
- Contact the organization MODIFY, which runs the program for transitional age youth and youth trying to gain independence in West Virginia
- Call (304) 356-4559 or email Modify@wvuhsc.onmicrosoft.com
- Or visit their website for more information: cedwvu.org/about-ced/
If you have any trouble getting connected to resources, please reach out to the staff at FosterClub. We do not manage the pandemic relief funds in other states, but the Resourcing Team is happy to help anyone in need!
