The Education and Training Voucher (ETV) Program helps youth aging out of foster care to make the transition to self-sufficiency and receive the education, training and services necessary to obtain employment. This program is designed to help former foster youth who have not yet attained the age of 21 years old who are eligible for services under the Chafee Foster Care Independence Program to pay for post-secondary education or training. ETV gives students up to $5000 a year for qualified school related expenses. Funding is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible students. Students looking for ETV funds must complete the ETV application (imbed hyperlink: http://www.fc2sprograms.org/new-york/). Youth must have been accepted into or be enrolled in a degree, certificate or other accredited program at a college, university, technical, or vocational school to qualify.
