This link gives details for FL: http://frcflorida.org/family-resource/full-case-management/become-a-foster-parent/
From the link:
Financial Support for Foster Parent(s): Foster Parents are entitled to the following benefits:
- Medicaid will pay for all medical expenses relating to the child.
- Family Resource Center provides monetary compensation to foster families in form of a board payment. The Board Rate is $18.00 per day depending on the level of care the child needs.
- In addition to the Board Rate, you will receive a separate check for the child(ren)’s allowance. The Allowance is $40.00 per month per child ages 14 through 18 years old.
- You will also receive a once-a-year clothing allowance for any child that has been in Foster Care for six months of more. The Clothing Allowance is $200 a year.
So it looks like base board rate would be $540-ish/month plus an annual $200 for clothing. I'm thinking that most of Florida doesn't have to change wardrobes twice/year like further North so maybe that's not unreasonable for clothing.
