AnswerNo. Foster care maintenance payments must be made directly to foster family homes or child-care institutions from the State child welfare agency or through the public or private nonprofit child-placement or child-care agency with which the State contracts for making and/or supervising placements. Federal financial participation is not available for foster care maintenance payments made through a for-profit child-placing or child-care agency.
