What are Education and Training Vouchers?
With the enactment of the Safe and Stable Families Act, H.R. 2873 - 10 section 201, the Federal Government has recently provided allocations to states. These vouchers may be provided to eligible youth to help fund their post-secondary educational and training endeavors. Funds from this source are called Education and Training Vouchers (ETV).
Youth eligible for this funding opportunity must meet Michigan's Youth in Transition (YIT) fund eligibility requirements. Youth who were adopted on or after their 16th birthday are also eligible. Funds from this source are available to youth until their 26th birthday as long as all eligibility requirements continue to be met, for up to 5 fiscal years.
