Housing & Homelessness
|Publication
This publication summarizes findings of a survey of county child welfare agencies that partner with their local Public Housing Authority to provide special population Housing Choice Vouchers to former foster youth. The purpose of the survey was to determine the potential impact of the proposed elimination of the Housing Navigation and Maintenance Program in the 2024-25 state budget. Counties commonly use this funding to assist youth with federal vouchers with securing housing with their voucher.

On March 22, JBAY partnered with the Economic Security Project to host a webinar for NextUp programs located in Los Angeles County. Last year, just 6% of foster youth in LA County received the Foster Youth Tax Credit, which provides $1,117 to current and former foster youth who file their state taxes. At the webinar, attendees NextUp campuses learned about the Claim Your Cash Call Center Hotline (888-844-3276) established by LA County. This hotline provides free tax preparation and referrals to people who can provide high-quality tax filing assistance. Use of the hotline has previously been limited to county departments but is now being made available to NextUp campuses in LA County.
