Financial reimbursement.

  • Monthly reimbursement between $575 and $1,700
  • Respite daily rate of $50 for a planned respite and $70 for a crisis respite
  • Medical and dental coverage for a foster child

While the reimbursement is helpful in offsetting some of the costs of care, foster parents typically absorb some costs themselves. They do it because they are volunteering to make a difference in the lives of children. Payments are considered reimbursement and are not taxable income.
