Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the extension of services for a successful adulthood for former foster care youth who are between the ages of eighteen years and twenty-one years, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.

The bill allows county departments of human or social services to extend the provision of certain services for a successful adulthood to foster care youth between the ages of 18 and 21 who have exited the foster care system (former foster care youth), including assistance with employment, housing, education, financial management, mental health care, and substance abuse treatment (services for a successful adulthood).

The bill also tasks the state department of human services with establishing a former foster care youth steering committee. The purpose of the steering committee is to develop recommendations for an implementation plan that supports the long-term provision of services for a successful adulthood for former foster care youth.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
