Summary: This bill would amend Local Law 48 of 2014 which requires the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) to report on whether youth in currently in foster care and who have recently aged out of care have government-issued identification disaggregated by the type of identification. The bill would add the total number of youth aged 17 in older in care and the total number of youth who aged out of care, and the total number of youth in those groups who obtained any type identification to the local law. The bill would also add the number of youth who only possess one form of government-issued personal identification both while they are in care and at the point the age out of care, disaggregated by the type of identification. The proposed bill would also require ACS to make all reports required pursuant to the proposed bill available on its website.

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1.   Subdivision b of section 21-908 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 48 for the year 2014, is amended to read as follows:

b. Beginning no later than January 31, 2015, and no later than every January 31 thereafter, the commissioner shall submit to the speaker of the council and post on ACS' website an annual report for the prior calendar year that includes the following information:

1. the number of youth in foster care who are aged seventeen or older; and the total number of youth in foster care who are aged seventeen or older and have a form of government-issued personal identification, disaggregated by birth certificate, social security card, state-issued identification, municipal identification, passport or other form of government-issued personal identification, the number of such youth who only possess one form of government-issued personal identification, disaggregated by the type of identification and the number of youth in foster care who obtained such identification with assistance from ACS; provided, however, that the information relating to municipal identification, passports or other forms of government-issued personal identification required by this paragraph shall be included in such report only upon required New York state approval of changes to the Discharge Checklist and PYA Checklist in a manner that reasonably allows for the collection of such information beginning with the report for the second calendar year following such approval;

2. the number of youth in foster care who were discharged with an APPLA goal; and the total number of youth with an APPLA goal who were in possession of a birth certificate, social security card, state-issued identification, municipal identification or passport at the time of discharge from foster care, disaggregated by the type of identification and the number of such youth who only possess one form of government-issued personal identification at the point of discharge, disaggregated by the type of identification; provided, however, that the information relating to municipal identification and passports required by this paragraph shall be included in such report only upon required New York state approval of changes to the Discharge Checklist and PYA Checklist in a manner that reasonably allows for the collection of such information beginning with the report for the second calendar year following such approval; and

3. a description of the actions ACS has taken in the prior calendar year to assist youth in foster care in obtaining the kinds of government-issued personal identification described in the report required by this subdivision. The reports required pursuant to this section shall remain permanently accessible on ACS’ website.
