Who pays for the child in the home?

The agency will provide a monthly payment for room and board, clothing, personal care, recreation, other expenses, and allowance based on the age of the child. A yearly clothing voucher will be supplied based on the age of the child. In some situations, an additional monthly monetary payment for supervision, support, and additional services for a child with an emotional, behavioral, or medical/personal need may be provided. Medicaid is provided to cover medical, dental, and mental health costs.
