Senators Robert P. Casey Jr. (D-PA) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) introduced the Adoption Tax Credit Refundability Act of 2015 (S950) which would make the current adoption tax credit (ATC) fully refundable. Nearly one-half of families adopting from foster care are at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level and many have tax burdens so low that they cannot benefit unless the ATC is refundable. DAI is a member of the Adoption Tax Credit Working Group Executive Committee. For more information and to get information to advocate for S950, visit
