Adoption Subsidies/Title IV-E Adoption Assistance

The act will increase federal support to states so they can place more children permanently with relative guardians or adoptive parents, and enhance aid to foster youth. NACAC is pleased that, over time, the law will eliminate all income, resource, and family structure requirements related to Title IV-E adoption assistance.
