(This amendment provides additional funding for local departments of social services to continue financial support to youth aging out of foster care at 21, that began in March 2020. Local departments of social services were directed to provide these youth with a monthly stipend in the amount of $721, which is equal to the maintenance or room and board payment provided prior to their 21st birthday. The federal legislation signed December 27, 2020, directs states to allow youth who exited foster care since April 2020 to reenter foster care until September 2021.)
