The purpose of this thesis was to conduct a policy analysis of The Foster Care Independence Act of 1999 (P.L. 106-109). This study used David Gil's policy analysis framework, to analyze the Foster Care Independence Act of 1999. This policy was enacted to improve existing legislation, better serve and, better prepare youth who are emancipating from foster care for self-sufficiency. This policy specifies an increase in funding to states, allowing for more flexibility in how allocated funds are to be spent, and extends the age eligibility in efforts to better prepare more youth. The analysis of the Foster Care Independence Act of 1999 indicated that its implementation has not produced the intended outcomes. Emancipating foster care youth continue to encounter life challenges which they are not adequately prepared to meet.
