Final AFCARS Rule with ICWA Elements

Here is the final Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System Rule incorporating a number of new data elements states will have to report to the feds. These elements include important information on ICWA cases and placements. Many people in our field worked very hard to get these elements included, which required a supplemental notice and comment period.

This is the first time these ICWA data elements will be required by the federal government. The first anticipated annual AFCARS report that will include the information is anticipated by 2020 (thanks, Heather, for this information!).
