Background info: 

For the first time, states can now claim federal funds to help pay the costs of attorneys representing certain children and their parents in child welfare legal proceedings. Before this change, federal funds were available to help pay for attorneys representing child welfare agencies, but not for children’s or parents’ attorneys. Although this is not currently available for kinship/relative caregivers, we are hopeful the voices of constituents will demonstrate the need. Want to learn more? Contact!
