Highlight the Impact of Federal Adoption Discrimination State-By-State

Not only does the Aderholt amendment allow adoption and foster care agencies to discriminate, it also punishes states with nondiscrimination protections by withholding federal child welfare funding, further harming all children in foster care.

46 states have nondiscrimination policies based on religion, gender and sex, sexual orientation and/or gender identity or expression.  These states stand to lose 15% of their Title IVE and IVB funding if they enforce these policies – up to $1 billion nationally.
