You may be eligible to apply for a Chafee Grant. The California Chafee Grant Program gives money to Foster Youth and former Foster Youth to use for vocational training or college courses. The Chafee Grant program, also known as the Educational and Training Voucher (ETV), is a federally and state funded program and is subject to the availability of funds each year. The student must have been a Foster Youth between the ages of 16 to 19. The student must be under the age of 23 and have been eligible to receive services from the Department of Social Services Independent Living Program (ILP). Award amounts are based on need.
