(b) Recruit community volunteers to serve as foster parents for abused and neglected children who live in the community;
(c) Identify barriers to recruiting community foster parents and recommend strategies to address those identified barriers; and
(d) Create a community-based system of support for foster children and community foster parents.
(2) A demonstration project shall be subject to federal requirements and the restrictions agreed upon between the department and the county where the demonstration project is located. [1993 c.676 §28(3); 1999 c.1053 §7; 2001 c.189 §1; 2001 c.900 §226]
