Kinship Caregiver Support Act
The APA Public Interest Government Relations Office (PI-GRO) worked in support of the The Kinship Caregiver Support Act of 2007 (S. 661/H.R. 2188) which, if passed, would have:
- authorized grants for kinship navigator programs (state initiatives that provide information, referral, and follow-up services to grandparents and other relatives raising children to link them to the benefits and services that they or the children need);
- allowed states to provide kinship guardianship assistance payments; and
- authorized kinship guardianship demonstration projects.
PI-GRO is now working in support of reintroduction of this legislation.
