The Grandfamilies State Law and Policy Resource Center
The Grandfamilies State Law and Policy Resource Center serves as a national legal resource created to educate individuals about state laws and legislation in support of grandfamilies and to assist interested state legislators, advocates, caregivers, attorneys, and other policymakers in exploring policy options to support relatives and the children in their care both within and outside the child welfare system. This resource center consists of:
- a searchable database of current laws and pending legislation;
- topical analyses, which include summaries and comparisons of state laws, legislative trends, and practical advocacy and implementation information;
- powerful personal stories from grandfamilies; and
- other relevant internet resources.
