Dear [insert congressional title and name],
Please be sure to include children in and transitioning out of foster care in the financial support provided by any upcoming COVID-19 relief legislation. Specifically, please allocate $400 million for John H. Chafee Foster Care Programs for Youths Aging out of Foster Care; and increase the Chafee Education and Training Vouchers Program for training and postsecondary education from $5,000 to $12,000 per youth per year. In addition, we ask that a state match not be required to receive these funds or those that support various foster caregivers, like grandparents, foster parents, or residential childcaring institutions. Thank you for your service and your continued commitment to Georgia’s children and families.
