Public comment is sought on the proposed John H. Chafee Foster Care Program Plan for 2020–2024, which outlines how the state will serve youth ages 14 to 21, over the next five years, who have experienced foster care. The John H. Chafee Foster Care Program for Successful Transition to Adulthood helps current and former foster care youths achieve self-sufficiency.
Grants are offered to states and tribes who submit a plan to assist youth in a wide variety of areas designed to support a successful transition to adulthood. Activities and programs include, but are not limited to, help with education, employment, financial management, housing, emotional support and assured connections to caring adults.

- Each county department of social services during normal business hours
- Online at https://www.ncdhhs.gov/divisions/social-services/public-notices
