(This amendment adds funds to provide financial support to families who adopt children with special needs and higher costs of care. Funds provided in this item originate from the federal TANF grant for welfare reform. Those funds are transferred to the Social Services Block Grant, which is used to pay for services provided to children in the federal Title IV-E foster care program. In turn, general fund appropriations in the State Subsidy (Special Needs Adoption) Program would be used to support the projected caseload growth in adoption subsidies for children not eligible for the Title IV-E program.)
