OCS Independent Living Program (ILP)
Independent Living Funds are available through the Office of Children's Services for youth in custody and those who were in custody on or after their 16th birthday but have not yet turned 21, who need support as they prepare for the transition from foster care to self-sufficiency. Independent Living Funds can be used to help youth gain the skills, experience, and materials they will need to become self-sufficient adults.
