This grant is for eligible foster care and adopted youth in Virginia. Youth ages 16 to 21 must have had their most recent foster care provided by the state of Virginia; must be eligible for services under Virginia's Chafee Foster Care Independence Program (CFCIP); must have received their high school diploma or equivalent, or general education development (GED); youth pursuing post secondary education should complete and submit the Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA); must have initiated their post-secondary education or training before reaching the age of 21; and must make satisfactory academic progress by maintaining at least a cumulative GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale or have an academic standing consistent with the institution's graduation requirements for the federal student financial aid program. Youth 21 to 23 must meet all eligibility requirements for youth ages 16 to 21 listed above; and must be a participant in the voucher program on the date they become 21 to be eligible to for assistance until age 23, as long as they are enrolled in a post-secondary education or training program and are making satisfactory progress toward completion of that program. Adopted youth adopted from Virginia's foster care system after reaching age 16 are eligible for the ETV Program as long as they meet the same eligibility requirements for foster youth and who would have been otherwise eligible for services under Virginia's CFCIP.
