For Care Of The Teen

The amount of support available to you may vary based on the child’s age and special needs. If you are a licensed foster parent, your funding will begin when the youth is placed in your home. If you are a relative caregiver of a child in the foster care system, your home will have to be inspected and approved before funding will begin.
