Extending pandemic support for transition-age youth

There is an effort in the Congress to extend the federal pandemic-related support for Transition Age Youth for an additional year. Currently these supports will expire on Oct. 1, 2021.

This new House bill would provide the following:

  • Extend these supports for one year
  • Double the federal appropriation for the Chafee program from $400k to $800K
  • Double the federal appropriation for TAY vouchers from $50 million to $100 million

We are asking members who serve Transition-Age Youth to contact your Congressional House Representative and ask them to co-sponsor H.5167, and let them know why this extension is important to TAY youth that you serve.
