Law Makers Propose Housing Funding for Former Foster Youth

Posted: Updated:

State law-makers have advancing a measure to give housing assistance to former foster youth.

The bill would allow those between the ages of 19 and 21 to receive assistance from the state to pay for housing. The aim is to help young adults avoid becoming homeless.

It is believed that by getting support to build a stable foundation when first leaving foster care, they would need less government support in the future.

The program is estimated to cost nearly 1.5-million dollars over the first two years.
