8.3B.2  TITLE IV-E, Foster Care Maintenance Payments Program, Payments, Rates

Browse By Policy Area

Question 1.  
What are the restrictions for rate setting with respect to for-profit child-care institutions?

Question 2.  
In our State, we pay four different rates for foster care maintenance. A basic rate to all foster parents covers food, clothing, shelter, and personal incidentals. In addition, there are three levels of supplements which are paid to foster parents who care for children with varying degrees of physical or emotional handicaps. The higher rates in these cases relate to the increased supervision required for children with special needs and are considered a part of the foster care maintenance payment. Are these supplemental payments to foster parents allowable for reimbursement under title IV-E foster care as a maintenance cost?
