100 Children Find Permanency Through The Kinship Guardianship Assistance Program (KinGAP)

The Kinship Guardianship Assistance Program (KinGAP) is designed for a foster child to achieve a permanent placement with a relative who had been the child’s foster parent for at least six months. This program provides financial support and in most cases medical coverage for the child, beginning with the child’s discharge from foster care to the guardian. OCFS is happy to report that over 100 children have been discharged from foster care and achieved permanency through the KinGAP program! If you would like more information about the KinGAP Program, please visit the KinGAP webpage.
