In a new paper released today, the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) detailed the history and progress of the Adoption Tax Credit in the United States and called on the federal and state governments to create or expand existing credits to promote a culture of adoption. In addition to improving lives by providing a permanent and stable home for a child in a distressed situation, adoption also has a fiscal element. The Adoption Tax Credits help avert the public expense due to the social costs associated with raising children under less than ideal conditions.
