dc.descriptionPROJECT NAME: Foster Parent Reimbursement: Establishing Adequate and Reasonable Rates PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR: Diane DePanfilis PROJECT DATES: 2005 – 2007.en_US
dc.description.abstractThis report presents the first‐ever calculation of the real expenses of caring for a child in foster care in the United States. It systematically demonstrates that rates of support for children in foster care are far below what is needed to provide basic care for these children in nearly every state in the nation. On average, across the U.S., current foster care rates must be raised by 36 percent in order to reach the Foster Care Minimum Adequate Rates for Children (the “Foster Care MARC”) calculated through this project. In some states, rates are less than half of what it actually costs to care for a child in foster care. (from Executive Summary)en_US
