|Between 3:00-3:30 pm ET TODAY, Wednesday, January 17th, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on HR 3058, Recruiting Families Using Data Act.
This bill will improve recruitment, retention, support and training for kin, foster and adoptive parents.
NFPA has been instrumental in helping move this bill forward, making ongoing Congressional connections with legislators and staffers, and with our Capitol Hill Day during our NFPA Fall Meeting. Twenty of NFPA’s CoSA members met with 12 Congressional leaders and staffers and participated in a high-level impact briefing with staffers from the House Ways and Means Committee to discuss the complexities of foster parenting and needed support. The dialogue at this meeting between NFPA CoSA members and congressional leaders and staff helped move the bill forward for review.
