Young people in and aging out of foster care deserve the same opportunities for success as all young people transitioning into adulthood.
Systems Impact Grants can support jurisdictions in identifying and implementing systemic policy and practice changes to improve outcomes for young people and/or a portion of the costs associated with adding or expanding LifeSet and/or high-quality extended foster care services in partnership with Youth Villages. Awards ranging from $500,000 to $4 million over three to four years have been granted in the past.
Applicants must be public agencies (i.e., state or county child welfare and human service agencies; community-based care organizations in privatized child welfare systems). In a privatized child welfare system, private agencies who formally direct distribution of public funds on behalf of the government agency may also apply.
If you are interested in applying, please complete the Systems Impact Grant Request for Information Form and a member of our team will be in touch to discuss this opportunity. Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. CT on Friday, March 29, 2024, to be considered for this funding opportunity.
