Funding Opportunity: Improving Service Delivery to Youth in the Child Welfare System

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On June 08, 2011 (EST)

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support the effective implementation of strategies to help youth at risk of aging out or who are 18-21 and still involved with the child welfare system to develop skills to strengthen and manage relationships with biological family members and other important individuals in their lives. These strategies will facilitate reunification, when safe and appropriate, or other legal permanency for older youth in foster care (including those who enter care at age 16 or older), and promote a healthy transition to adulthood.

While achieving permanency is an important result of this FOA, the critical part of the work is to develop, implement, and support a framework or practice model to promote protective mechanisms in youth that allows for increased capacity and skills to build and maintain lasting healthy relationships. The target population will be determined by the applicant's detailed data analysis, but older children and youth must be between 10 and 21, and in foster care, or young adults who have aged out but are still involved with the foster care system.
