Public Workshop for Rule Development Related to Extension of Foster Care

65C-41, F.A.C. is being developed by the Department to implement new legislation. The 2013 Legislature passed Senate Bill 1036, authorizing young adults in foster care who have not reached permanency before age 18 years of age to remain in care until 21 years of age. This legislation substantially amended the following sections of the Florida Statutes: 39.013, 39.6013, 39.701, 409.145, 409.1451, 409.175, and 409.903 and created sections 39.6035 and 39.6251, Florida Statutes. These changes necessitate new rule development.

Pursuant to the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, any person requiring special accommodations to participate in this meeting is asked to advise the agency at least 5 days before the meeting by contacting Eleese Davis at: eleese_davis@dcf.state.fl.us.
