     Cape & Islands Foster Care Enrichment Fund

The CCNSC's Foster Care Support Task Force awards funds that enable foster children to participate in enriching experiences that would otherwise be cost-prohibitive.*  Awards are made by the Task Force from the Foster Care Enrichment Fund up to $350 per foster child per school year.  We accept applications from foster parents, social workers, service coordinators, school professionals, and foster youth.  We love to hear that thanks to an enrichment fund, a foster child has pursued a passion or discovered a new talent or skill, or done something he or she hasn't had the opportunity to do before!   (*If state agency funds are not applicable and/or not available).
