In April 2020, the Victorian Government announced new funding of more than $4 million to support young people turning 18 years old and due to leave care during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Young people in care turning 18 years between 16 March 2020 and 31 December 2020 may be eligible for additional support until 30 June 2021 via the coronavirus (COVID-19) Home Stretch initiative.

These factsheets provide guidance to Better Futures Providers, child protection practitioners, contracted case managers and Aboriginal Children in Aboriginal Care (ACAC) case managers to ensure an application for coronavirus (COVID-19) Home Stretch is successfully completed.
