On June 28, a law creating the Fostering Independence Waiver, which will provide college tuition waivers for youth in foster care beginning in Fall 2020, was enacted. This is a critically important step forward to support youth in the child welfare system, and we're thrilled to share this news with you.
As we know, critical barriers to youth in foster care are education, placements, and transportation. The Fostering Independence Waiver Act will give our young people in the child welfare system access to educational opportunities that will empower them to dream about a bright future.
Thank you for everything you did to support this state legislation, and stay tuned for the implementation phase! What a great way to celebrate Independence Day!
