NY: State Could Be First State to Take Closer Look at Adoption Subsidies
Chronicle of Social Change – June 02, 2017
When adoptions from foster care fall apart, youth often end up back in foster care, with a biological relative, or on the streets. But in most cases, the government still provides financial assistance to the adoptive parents. There is little appetite for close scrutiny of households once they have agreed to take in a foster youth, because adoptive homes are not considered to be different from the homes of biological families. But many adoptive parents do sign contracts to receive support subsidies, and a bill has been introduced in the New York Senate that would empower the state to more closely regulate those payments.
