Democrat Representative from Washington State, Jim McDermott on September 8th introduced HR 5947, the Improved Employment Outcomes for Foster Youth Act of 2016.
This bill proposes to expand the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) to include “foster care transition youth” as an 11th qualifying target group. These are individuals, not yet 27 years old, who have been in foster care after a certain age.
The maximum tax credit generated would be $2,400, similar to most other WOTC categories.
At this time, the bill is also supported by 5 additional House cosponsors, including: David G. Reichert (R-WA), Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), Danny K. Davis (D-IL), Tom Reed (R-NY) and Karen Bass (D-CA).
