*All* young adults under 21 aging out of foster in WA are now eligible for Extended Foster Care

Foster youth turning 18 will now receive services through the age of 21 thanks to a new law that went into effect on June 6, which eliminates requirements, allowing for more youth to receive critical assistance regardless of their future plans.

Foster youth who agree to continue in Extended Foster Care (EFC) will be eligible for services such as care placement, supervised independent living, medical, continued case management by DCYF, referrals to community resources, and a monthly financial subsidy, under Senate Bill 5908.
