Chafee Foster Care Independence Program (CFCIP) provides funding to pay for services to help youth prepare for and enter postsecondary education. Some of these services include academic support services including educational and career assessment and counseling, tutorial and mentoring services, examination preparation, SAT/ACT/PSAT fees, applications for admission to college, visits to colleges and clothing for college interviews. Be sure to check with your case worker to see if you are eligible for any of these funds. The program is intended to serve youth who are likely to remain in foster care until age 18; youth who, after attaining 16 years of age, have left foster care for kinship guardianship or adoption; and young adults ages 18-21 who have "aged out" of the foster care system.
