Sign On Letter for Bill Creating Evidence-based Grants for Youth Aging Out of Foster Care

From our friends at Results for America. Children’s Home & Aid and the Social Innovation Research Center have signed this letter and are helping to distribute it. You can read and sign the letter by clicking here.

I’m writing to ask you to consider joining Results for America in supporting the Increasing Opportunities for Former Foster Youth Act (S. 3025). Senators Grassley (R-UT) and Wyden (D-OR) recently introduced this bipartisan bill to improve services for older youth aging out of foster care. 

The bill would commit $100 million over five years to support 10 to 15 programs each year aimed at helping older youth in foster care transition into adulthood. More specifically, this new federal grant program would award validation grants to local governments, State governments, or private service providers proposing to invest federal funds in interventions with preliminary evidence of effectiveness; development and replication grants to support interventions that are working to build causal levels of evidence and interventions with the strongest evidence of effectiveness.

Please let us know by COB Wednesday January 29, 2020 if your organization would like to sign on.

You can sign on by completing this form.

For more information or if you have questions, please contact Kate Tromble at or (202) 570-3122.
