ACT NOW to Reauthorize the Adoption Incentive ProgramSupport Adoption and Relative Guardianship
Ask your Senators to act NOW to reauthorize the Adoption Incentive Program and help support adoption and relative guardianship
Today, more than 127,000 children and young people in foster care are waiting to leave the system - for good - to join permanent families. Every day without a permanent family feels like a lifetime to a child.
The bipartisan Adoption Incentives Program has helped nearly 450,000 children leave the uncertainty of foster care to join adoptive families - but unless Congress acts now, it will expire on September 30, 2008. The House acted unanimously to reauthorize the Adoption Incentives Program in late June and included provisions to provide relative guardianship as an additional way for children to exit foster care for permanent families. Please join us in urging the Senate to act before August recess begins.
ACTION REQUIREDSenators on the Finance Committee, which has jurisdiction over the nation's foster care system, will play a key role in promoting safe, permanent families for our most vulnerable children.
