Raising Government Children

Catherine E. Rymph

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter explores policy changes in the 1960s that for the first time allowed federal funds to be spent on board payments but which also made foster care a more punitive system, now firmly linked to public assistance, in which children of color were overrepresented. It looks particularly at the impact of the creation of Aid to Families with Dependent Children-Foster Care (AFDC-FC) in making foster care in this transition.

Keywords:   federal funding for foster care, overrepresentation of racial minorities in foster care, Aid to Families with Dependent Children-Foster Care (AFDC-FC)
