Description

Foster care; placement and discharge requirements. Requires children's residential facilities, child-placing agencies, and qualified residential treatment programs that receive state or federal funds for placement costs to (i) accept any foster child in Virginia who meets the applicable admissions criteria, subject to certain requirements set forth in the bill, and (ii) prioritize the admission of children in foster care in Virginia over out-of-state applicants. The bill prohibits children's residential facilities, child-placing agencies, and qualified residential treatment programs that have entered into a placement agreement with a local department of social services from discharging a child except as provided in the placement agreement. The bill also requires children's residential facilities, child-placing agencies, and qualified residential treatment programs to work with certain parties to secure an alternative placement for a child prior to discharge in the event the child fails to meet certain placement criteria.
