Child welfare advocates discussed 2021 priority legislation and budget requests for the upcoming fiscal year intended to provide additional support for children and caregivers served by our child welfare system. Panelists provided an overview of bills and current budget proposals promoting stability for youth in care and discussed strategies for supporting caregivers, young children, older youth in foster care, and expectant and parenting youth.

Panelists also provided details on the new flexibilities to waive participation requirements, the financial support available to youth who turn 21 during the current fiscal year, and new housing supports and flexibilities in approving housing units to better support those youth re-entering care or transitioning between placements. The webinar covered best practices from the field, practice tips for attorneys, and recommendations to support and address housing stability for youth in EFC and successful planning and transitions out of the EFC program.​
