    The Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act takes important steps to meet the needs of older children and young adults as they prepare to leave foster care. Beginning October 1, 2010, under the act, states have the option to amend their Title IV-E state plans to claim federal funds for young adults in foster care beyond their 18th birthday, or for those who exited foster care after age 16 to guardianship or adoption, to age 19, 20, or 21. For young adults in foster care, this extension should be used by states as additional time to identify a permanent family, and to provide the young adult with the services, supports, and skills needed to transition successfully to adulthood. This sample legislation is a tool that state policymakers, administrators and advocates can use as they advocate for and develop legislation to extend support to young adults beyond age 18 in response to Fostering Connections. It can be the basis for new legislation or help in evaluating current state laws or pending legislation.

    "Dear Councilmember," the child carefully wrote on yellow lined paper. "I am 10 1/2 years old. I live with my family at the shelter. When I grow up, I want to be a singer. I think you need to find more money to help families find housing because people is in danger without a home. So please, please find more money. SO STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND FIND MORE MONEY. Thank you for listening."
