Modifications to Extended Foster Care in Response to COVID-19

11/6/202012:00pm PST2 hours
Non-Minor Dependents (NMD) between ages 18 – 21 and those NMDs who turned 21 during the global pandemic are eligible for extended support as a result of action taken by the Legislature and the Governor. Join us for a webinar to learn about these recent changes to law, policies and guidance issued in response to COVID-19 that impact youth in Extended Foster Care (EFC). Panelists will detail 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. Panelists will also discuss 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.

MCLE credit is available.
