Call on Congress to Extend Emergency Aid to Youth in Foster Care

ReUpChafee 2021

Young people in and aging out of foster care are still struggling during this pandemic. Congress must extend emergency assistance by increasing Chafee funds and extending all relief aid until at least 2022.

Will you extend emergency relief to youth in foster care through HR 5167?

Dear Policymaker,

The initial wave of pandemic relief under Division X of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 provided a lifeline for a lot of young people in and exiting foster care across the country. It allowed young people to focus on their education, secure housing and meet many basic needs. But the pandemic is not over, and many young people in and transitioning out of foster care during this crisis still need help and additional aid.



Urgent action is needed now to make sure young people can make it through this crisis, stay healthy, and thrive. As a constituent who cares about young people and their futures, I'm asking you to extend emergency aid to youth in foster care and pass HR 5167.

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to your response.

Sincerely,

Sign the Petition:
