Foster Care


How much will I be paid?


​Foster Parents do not get paid for providing care to the children placed in their homes. However, for each child placed in your home you will receive a foster care reimbursement to be used for caring for and meeting the needs of the children placed in your homes.  These needs include providing adequate and appropriate clothing and feeding of the foster child. The basic foster care rates currently range from $657 to $820 per month, depending on the age of the child. For children who have special requirements, there is a specialized care increment, ranging from $79 up to $840 per month, determined by the child’s social worker.
