FAQ
  Foster Care
Will I receive a stipend to help with food and clothing costs?
 
Answer:
Twice monthly, you'll receive a payment, based on the age and needs of the child. You will also receive a semi-annual clothing allowance. Children in foster care are eligible for Medicaid, which pays for medical, dental and mental-health care. Many foster families will qualify for reimbursement for the costs of day care.
