Children's Bureau (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This booklet presents the texts of the Model State Subsidized Adoption Act and Model Regulations. Comments which expand and explain most sections of the Act are included. Subsidized adoption provides reimbursement (after a child with special needs has been placed for adoption) according to a prior agreement between the adoptive parent(s) and the social agency. The agreement is to be tailored to the child's needs and may allow for a specific medical, legal or other cost. It can be a monthly reimbursement for a limited time or for an indefinite period. Provisions of the Act include purpose, eligibility, administration and funding, the subsidy agreement, and appeals. The Act is meant to be read in conjunction with the Model Regulations which amplify and particularize the provisions of the Act. (ED)
