Link for 2010 foster care reimbursement rates? - Page 2

post #21 of 22

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:

  1. Medicaid will pay for all medical expenses relating to the child.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Sounds like your research paper was AWESOME!! I wish more people would realize how much it really cost to raise those little ones! How very sad for the little one that had no birthday or Christmas gifts!!
