In-Service Training

Benefits: Funding and Fostering Rates (Online)

When: May 27, 2021 from 12 pm to 2 pm

Most children who are in out-of-home care, and all children in foster care qualify for funding. Children who have special medical, developmental, or emotional needs may even be eligible to receive a specialized care rate–higher than the basic rate. Most counties have their own rate structures to account for children’s special needs. Los Angeles County, in particular, has specialized care rates.

Join the Alliance for Children’s Rights, as we explore:

  • types of benefits (foster care funding, ARC, CalWorks)
  • specialized care rates (D-rate, F-rate, dual agency rates)
  • the purpose of foster care funding
  • how to better advocate for funding
  • benefits beyond foster care
