The basic purposes of adoption assistance programs are to promote and sustain permanent families for children with special needs.
Adoption assistance payments are financed by a combination of state and federal funds in cases where the child is eligible for title IV-E adoption assistance and by state-only funds in cases where the child is not eligible for title IV-E adoption assistance. These payments are usually administered and distributed by a state or county agency.
