HUD Announces $1.4 Million for Foster Care Transition Initiative

Foster Youth to Independence program receives funding.

This month, in observance of National Foster Care Month, the Department of Housing and Urban Development announced $1.4 million in assistance through their Foster Youth to Independence initiative. The program provides 18- to 24-year-olds who grew up through the foster care system training, resources, and tools to reach their goals and achieve self-sufficiency.

“The Foster Youth to Independence initiative fills a longstanding gap in support for young people who are transitioning out of foster care,” said Secretary Marcia Fudge. “During National Foster Care Month, we recognize the challenges young people face in the foster care system and recommit to improving housing outcomes for our nation’s foster youth.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for Secretary Fudge as funding is allocated to support young adults who have exited the foster care system.
  • For the president and his administration as they address housing and independence for foster youths.
