AI - Placement Stability Incentive Payments for Resource Parents

Friday, May 24, 2019

A child’s placement stability during his or her stay in foster care is a key indicator for positive outcomes. The Child and Family Services Agency (CFSA) seeks to minimize unplanned moves and placement disruptions, which can extend a child’s stay in foster care. CFSA therefore makes available a financial incentive to licensed CFSA resource parents who demonstrate the ability to contribute to positive outcomes for children in their care by maintaining a safe and stable placement for those children and by working toward timely permanency. This governance outlines the requirements, process, and schedule for distributing the incentive payment to resource parents who qualify for the incentive.
