AB 995: Reducing Homelessness Among Former Foster Youth

March 5, 2019

This webinar discussed AB 995 which was introduced by Assemblymember Phil Ting to reduce homelessness among former foster youth. The bill proposes to increase access to the state’s only housing program for youth transitioning out of foster care, the Transitional Housing Program-Plus (THP-Plus) program and foster coordination with the local homeless response system which is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the California Department of Housing and Community Development. The webinar provided background information that explains the impetus for the legislation, outlined the bill’s provisions, and walked through the necessary steps required to turn the bill into law.
