  5. Louisiana trying to extend foster care program until age 21Read the original story w/Photo

    Aug 3, 2018 | The Advocate

Now, state officials want to find a way to care for all foster children until they turn 21. Lawmakers came up with $1 million in the current budget year to continue paying for foster children to reach high school graduation or age 21, whichever happens first. Financing for the proposal sponsored by Republican Sen. Ryan Gatti was a surprise, initially seeming like a long-shot amid difficult tax negotiations to stave off deep cuts across state government.
