Moving from Foster Care to Adulthood Pilot -How to Apply Webinar

moving-slider

 

In 2016, the Virginia General Assembly established the Fostering Futures program to provide extended foster care supports for up to three years for those aging out of foster care. While transitioning to adulthood, in addition to other supports, participants in the Fostering Futures program receive $700/month to cover basic living expenses. Program participants may choose to remain in the foster family home or live independently while working on school/employment goals.

The Moving from Foster Care to Adulthood Rental Assistance Pilot was created to provide up to three years of tenant based rental assistance (TBRA) to Fostering Futures program participants, in addition to the $700/month living expenses, in two high cost markets (Richmond city and Charlottesville/Albemarle) to help stabilize housing options for participants during this critical transition period. Department of Housing and Community Development in partnership with the Department of Social Service is seeking a subrecipient (s) to administer a TBRA program that is targeted to Fostering Futures program participants in Richmond city and/or Charlottesville/Albemarle.

Small Scale Developer Training Kickoff Webinars

small-real-estate

The Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) partnered with Incremental Development Alliance to provide the Small Real Estate Developer and Capacity Building Program, supported with funding from the Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA).

The objective of this training is to cultivate new and grow the capacity of existing small-scale real estate developers throughout Virginia. Through incremental, small-scale development, we can revitalize neighborhoods, reinvigorate historic downtowns and commercial districts, and build value for property owners and communities around the commonwealth. To increase awareness of this program and to help assist with the recruitment process, we have scheduled several webinars for DHCD's local, regional and state partners.

These webinars are intended to talk more about the program and how you can help encourage people to come to the in-person lecture happening in their region.
