(This amendment removes $1.0 million GF the second year and budget language that would have provided parents that adopt foster care children with a one-time payment of $1,000 when the adoption is finalized. Federal law provides parents with a refundable adoption tax credit of $12,970 for the adoption of special needs children depending upon the parents income. Budget language is modified to clarify that the target population of this initiative is foster care children with special needs.)
