better outcomes for children and families.
President Trump is issuing an Executive Order that will enhance our child
welfare system and promote permanency for children in the foster care
system nationwide.
Among other changes, the Order seeks to increase partnerships between
public, private, faith-based, and community organizations to help keep
families together and, when that is not possible, to find children forever
families.
It improves the resources available to both caregivers and children,
including by increasing the accessibility of trauma-informed training.

The Order will also drive transparency on key statutory child welfare
requirements and guide States on how best to support high-quality legal
representation for parents and children.

PROTECTING VULNERABLE YOUTH: Through this Order, President Trump is

promote permanent homes.
There are currently more than 400,000 children and youth in foster care in
the United States, with many waiting years to find permanency with a
family.
Each year, close to 20,000 youth age out of care without the support of a
forever family to help them navigate their entry into adulthood and support
them as they pursue their dreams.
Unfortunately, youth that age out without the support of a permanent home
are shown to experience higher rates of homelessness, incarceration, and
unemployment.
Each and every child deserves a forever family, and the Trump
Administration is working with partners at all levels to champion this cause
and ensure that no child is forgotten.

The Trump Administration has issued a national challenge to find
permanent homes for all children and youth who are waiting for forever
families.
In February 2018, the President signed into law the landmark Family First
Prevention Services Act

the most sweeping legislation to impact Federal

child welfare financing and programs in decades.
o

Last year, the President signed further legislation to encourage States
to fully implement this Act as quickly as feasible.

President Trump signed into law the CARES Act, which distributed $45
million in grants to States, territories, and tribes to support the child
welfare needs of families impacted by coronavirus.
