Encouraging Adoption of Children in Foster Care: Trends in Washington's Financial Assistance Program

Open Publication PDF

Lee Doran, Lucy Berliner - February 2001

Washington State’s Adoption Support Program encourages families to adopt children from the child welfare system who, because of age, race, physical condition, or emotional health, are considered difficult to place.  The program was established by the 1971 Legislature and is intended to remove financial barriers to adoption.  Adoption assistance includes help with legal costs, fees for adoption, ongoing monthly maintenance for adopted children with special needs, medical coverage, counseling reimbursements, and training opportunities for adoptive parents.  The 2000 Legislature directed the Washington State Institute for Public Policy to review the Adoption Support Program (EHB 2487 §607 (5)).
