Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Act Awaits President's Signature

Earlier this month, the Supporting Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Act (S. 1091, H.R. 3105) passed both chambers and was sent to the president for his signature. This bill establishes a federal task force, the Advisory Council to Support Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, to identify, coordinate, and disseminate information, resources, and best practices to help grandparents and other older relatives. The council is required to solicit public input to inform the development of the report and recommendations. Generations United has developed a summary of this bill.
