Legislation has been proposed by the Administration to revise the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) foster care program. This committee print provides background information on the AFDC foster care program under Title IV-A (from 1962-1980); discusses the changes made in the program since the passage of the Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act of 1980 (P.L. 96-272) which transferred AFDC foster care to a new title (IV-E) and created the adoption assistance program; and describes proposals in the 99th Congress to modify the program. Appended are excerpts from the Social Security Act--Part B, Child Welfare Services, and Part E, Federal Payments for Foster Care and Adoption Assistance. (RH)
