How am I paid for providing family adult foster care?
Payment for foster care depends on the client's financial resources. Some clients might not qualify for any government assistance and will pay the entire cost of care through their resources including, pensions, social security, savings, stocks, etc. Other individuals may require some assistance to pay the cost of services. In those cases, the client would apply for state/federal programs which provide assistance paying for the cost of foster care. The provider may receive money from the resident and from these state/federal programs. Some clients may have no financial resources. In those cases, the state/federal assistance programs pay the total cost of foster care.
