Youth Scholarship Program

NFPA provides five youth scholarships each year to the foster, adopted or biological children of our members.

NFPA partners with Cedarworks, a compnay that designs and makes playscapes for children. We provide four to eight playscapes each year that are specifically designed for the needs of the children in the foster family. NFPA provides the mechanism of advertising this program, collecting applications, reviewing applications and then providing some of those to Cedarworks for them to make their final selections.

Each year, NFPA plans and hosts a national education/training conference for foster parents, adoptive parents, kinship caregivers and social workers, casemamangers, therapists, etc. This conference moves across the country over the period of three years in order to enable people from all parts of the United States to participate.
