Chafee Grant

Supporting Our Foster Youth

The Chafee Foster Youth Grant is offered to current or former foster youth who have a financial need. Up to $5,000 is available to qualified students each year.

How to Apply ​

The online Chafee Foster Youth Grant Application is available through the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) website. You can also find a paper application there and more information about the Chafee program, including up-to-date contact information.

You are required to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADA) and your school submits the Chafee Needs Analysis Report (NAR) to be evaluated for a Chafee Grant.

Note: Forms are year-specific. Be sure to complete the applications that correspond with the academic year you will be attending school.
