Foster Care Frequently Asked Question #3
Can I get financial help to open a foster or group home?
While the Children’s Bureau is the Federal Agency that allocates funds to State agencies to provide for child welfare services, the actual provision of foster care services is under the jurisdiction of the State and local agencies.
To obtain information on the requirements and procedures for opening a foster home in your State, you should contact your State Foster Care Program Manager. Contact information for each State’s Foster Care Program Manager can be found in the related organizations listing on Child Welfare Information Gateway’s website at http://www.childwelfare.gov/pubs/reslist/rl_dsp.cfm?typeID=10&rat....
