In May, Senator Susan Collins and Senator Bob Casey introduced the Supporting Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Act (S.1091). The legislation creates a federal task force to:

  • Identify and disseminate information about federal resources, information and best practices to help families where grandparents and other relatives are raising children.

  • Submit a report to Congress on best practices, resources and other information for the families and on gaps in services to meet the families' needs.

Here's the sign-on letter for organizations in support of the bill. To sign your organization onto the letter, please email Adam Otto by Friday, June 23rd. For additional background information about the bill, read this press release from the Senate Special Committee on Aging, which includes links to the archived hearing that spurred the legislation and a copy of the bill.
