Fostering Connections Webinar Coming Up

Two national child welfare organizations are teaming up to host webinars on the many provisions of the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoption Act, which was signed last year by former President George W. Bush.

The act was hailed as a major victory by many child welfare advocates. But with a down economy, states have been tepid about embracing new programs for which they would have to match federal dollars. And with a number of major nominees for leadership positions at the Administration for Children and Families yet to be confirmed, the administration has been slow to establish some of the procedural details about Fostering Connections funding.

These two web sessions will hone in on provisions for older foster care youth. Hosts for the online events are the National Foster Care Coalition and the National Court Appointed Special Advocates Association.
