President Signs Law that Requires Background Checks for Foster Care Parents on Reservations nativenewsonline.net/currents/president-signs-law-requires-background-checks-foster-care-parents-reservations/ President signing law Published June 4, 2016 WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama signed into law on Friday, June 3, 2016, S. 184, the “Native American Children’s Safety Act,” which amends the Indian Child Protection and Family Violence Prevention Act to require background checks before foster care placements are made by tribal social services agencies. The background checks measure American Indian children living on a reservation have the same protections when assigned to foster care that children living off the reservation have. The new law requires that national criminal records and child abuse or neglect registries in any state in which a would-be foster parent has lived in the preceding five years, and also forces foster care homes to undergo periodic safety recertifications.
