Unequal Treatment: Adoption Subsidy Support in New York State.
Avery, Rosemary J.; Ferraro, Rosellina
Adoption Quarterly, v1 n2 p59-85 1997
Analyzed New York's implementation of a legislated adoption subsidy program. Found variance in county subsidy levels not based on cost-of-living differences. Also found that special needs child subsidies are close to estimated rearing costs, and low subsidy counties cause a financial burden on adoptive parents. Findings pose implications for placement rates and adoption policy. (Author)
