Griffo Foster Care Bill Heading To The Governor

Senator Griffo’s Office

A bill sponsored by Senator Joseph Griffo to protect foster children from being placed in unsuitable homes has been passed by the state Senate and Assembly.

Griffo says currently, there is no formal system in place that would require an agency to review and evaluate an applicant’s history if the applicant were to apply to another agency to take in foster children.

The legislation would require agencies to consult with the Office of Children and Family Services whether a foster parent’s application has been certified or revoked, or if a child was removed from the home.

“The state is responsible for the safety and security of every child placed in their care,” said Senator Griffo.

The bill was sponsored in the Assembly by Nily Rozic of Queens.

It now goes to the Governor to be signed into law.
