New Funding and Support for Older Foster Youth


New funding for cash assistance, housing, college and more has been passed by Congress. We invite you to learn more about what new supports are available. 

Think of Us is hosting a national Town Hall to discuss the Supporting Foster Youth & Families through the Pandemic Act. Our guests will be Assistant Secretary Lynn A. Johnson, Administration for Children and Families, and Associate Commissioner Jerry Milner, Administration for Children and Families, Children’s Bureau, who will share remarks. The Children’s Bureau staff will give a high-level overview of the initial information related to new funding and additional support for current and former foster youth 14 to 26. 

Thanks to the tremendous work of current and former foster youth and the thousands of leaders the $900 billion stimulus bill has been signed into law. In addition to direct stimulus payments of $600 to eligible individuals, the bill also includes the Supporting Foster Youth & Families through the Pandemic Act (H.R. 7947)
