Southfield, MI - /PRNewswire/ -- The Park West Foundation, the charitable nonprofit arm of Park West Gallery, has launched the ifoster27 campaign to call on Michigan lawmakers to pass House Bill 4419 (H-1) on June 17th, 2021.
If passed, the House Bill 4419 (H-1) would call to release what are known as the "Chafee Pandemic Relief funds," which are federally approved Covid-19 relief funds and protections from the state's foster youth. These funds have been in limbo for over six months.
"Michigan's foster youth who are transitioning out of the foster care system are currently experiencing preventable hardships," said Director of Park West Foundation Diane Pandolfi. "The passing of Bill 4419 (H-1) is crucial to putting the necessary federal funding in the hands of Michigan's foster youth."
If interested in helping to ensure this bill passes, you can contact your local representative and ask for them to vote to pass House Bill 4419 (H-1) on June 17th, 2021. You can find contact information for your state representative here and your state senator here.
