Foster youth are disproportionally being affected by COVID-19. Current and former foster youth ages 14 through 29 who have spent at least one day in foster care after their 14th birthday are eligible to apply for up to $1,000 through a grant program with Think of Us. November 18, 2020 is the deadline to apply and grants will be awarded by December 1st, 2020.
What is this and what can a current or former foster youth possibly get?
This is an application for an opportunity to apply for a one-time micro cash grant of up to $1000 and an email with resources related to your needs.
What will happen when this fund run out of money?
We Will Go Above and Beyond - We will share the needs of applicants with additional donors, advocates and other stakeholders who we think can take action to solve your needs. We won't share any of the youth's personal information. If there are resources that they can provide, we will circle right back to you.
