SB 225 amends several code sections to comply with the federal “The Family First Prevention and Services Act” in order to maintain federal funding. The bill increases the standard of evidence in proving maltreatment in dependency cases involving children of federally-recognized Native American tribes. It also creates a new type of placement for children called the “Qualified Residential Treatment Program” that has a trauma-informed treatment model to address the needs of clinical and emotional needs of children. SB 225 additionally adds to existing legal requirements to provide vital records to youth aging out of foster care.
