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.
