Sample No Caps on Kids! Letter To Congress

I urge you to protect abused and neglected children and vote NO on the House budget reconciliation bill. This bill reduces federal foster care supports by $600 million and would particularly impact children living with grandparents and other relatives.

The reduction of federal Title IV-E foster care through the repeal of a federal court decision and the implementation of an HHS proposed rule limiting access to federal foster care funding, would mean that fewer children who need foster care may be able to live with family members.

Children who have been abused and neglected have already suffered significant trauma. The comfort of being able to live with relatives is not something we should take away. Reducing support for our most vulnerable children in order to reduce overall federal spending and to allow for additional tax cuts represents misplaced priorities and threatens the future of our children.

As you vote on the budget reconciliation bill, I hope that I can count on you to ensure that we protect our most vulnerable children and reject shortsighted proposals that deny supports to abused and neglected children.

Sincerely,
