Title:The Chafee Educational and Training Voucher (ETV) program: Six states experiences
Organization:Casey Family Programs
Short Description:This publication examines how the Chafee educational and training vouchers and other state-based supports for higher education have been working for young adults aging out of foster care. The National Foster Care Coalition (NFCC) has worked closely with six states to examine the implementation of the Chafee ETV Program since its inception in 2003: California, Maine, Montana, New York, North Carolina, and Wyoming.
Annotation:This publication examines how the Chafee educational and training vouchers and other state-based supports for higher education have been working for young adults aging out of foster care. The National Foster Care Coalition (NFCC) has worked closely with six states to examine the implementation of the Chafee ETV Program since its inception in 2003: California, Maine, Montana, New York, North Carolina, and Wyoming. These states were selected to provide a diverse view of ETV program implementation, including state- and county-administered child welfare programs, urban and rural programs, and programs serving either very large or very small populations of youth. This publication documents a select number of young people’s experiences with the ETV program and also shares recommendations from constituents and other stakeholders on how to improve this unique and important postsecondary education and training program.
