Extended Foster Care Program Budget Memo


The Alliance for Children’s Rights, Children NOW, County Welfare Directors Association of California (CWDA), and Service Employees International Union (SEIU) California, respectfully request support for a $50 million General Fund (GF) investment to support transition-aged foster youth and young adults participating in the Extended Foster Care (EFC) Program.

Research on the EFC Program has found numerous benefits for participating young adults, including improvements in education, employment, housing, and social support, and reductions in pregnancy and parenting and criminal justice system involvement.
