Are you aware that Oregon recently passed legislation which provides emergency cash assistance to persons who are currently between the ages of fourteen and twenty-six, and who were in foster care while they were fourteen years or older? As a part of the COVID relief legislation passed by Congress in December 2020, the Child Welfare Division of the Oregon Department of Human Services has received $2 million in federal funding which is now available to help teenagers and young adults with housing, food security, transportation, medical services, and other essentials.
Funding is limited to current or former foster youths who were fourteen years or older while in the care of the Child Welfare agency of any state or tribal nation.
