Modifications to Extended Foster Care in Response to COVID-19
MCLE credit is available.
This webinar provided an overview of the recent changes to law, policies and guidance issued in response to COVID-19 that impact youth in Extended Foster Care (EFC).
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.
