Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed a bill that will support foster children and parents.
DeSantis signed the bill during a news conference at Miami Dade College Tuesday morning.
The bill will set aside $19 million for stipends for relatives and non-relatives who take on the role of foster parents. Another $25 million will go toward paying $200 a month to parents of younger foster children, DeSantis said.
A third component of the bill expands tuition and fee waivers at schools and colleges for foster children.
