New foster parent applications are on pause from Nov. 1, 2022 - Mar. 1, 2023.
This does not apply to kinship applications, license renewals, and those getting licensed through a child placing agency. 

Renewing Your License

  • Your foster license is good for three years.
  • During each licensing cycle, you are required to complete 24 hours of continuing education credits.

To learn more about how to access training, visit the CaRES and Alliance training webpage. You will be notified in advance when your license will expire and given the steps to renew.

Steps to Renewing Your License

For any questions about the status of your license, contact your assigned LD worker.
