Foster America announces opportunity for finance professionals

Foster America invites finance professionals serving children, youth, and families to join a 12-month hybrid fellowship focused on fiscal innovation in the child welfare sector.  

The Fiscal Leadership Circle will work together to identify opportunities to shift financial resources toward community-based prevention services to decrease reliance on foster care placements.

Applicants should be leading fiscal work within or adjacent to child welfare agencies and have a project to advance over the length of the fellowship (e.g., expanding prevention funding streams including TANF, Family First, Medicaid, etc.; identifying opportunities for intergovernmental funding such as municipal bonds or trusts; developing performance-based contracting models for prevention services).

FLC fellows will join virtual programming three hours per month and travel for three in-person convenings. All travel expenses will be covered by Foster America.

Applicants may include:

– Financial officers from public child welfare agencies,
– Financial officers from community-based organizations
– Fiscal policy makers
– State budget office personnel

Applications are due Feb. 14, 2024.
