New Caregiver Supports Rates begin Jan. 1

January 22, 2024

Beginning Jan. 1, 2024, the current four-level rate assessment system will be replaced with a new, seven-level caregiver supports model.

As of February 2024, licensed foster parents will receive reimbursements according to the new model for services provided in January 2024.

January reimbursements which are for services provided in December 2023 will be at the current rates.

Licensed caregivers that currently have a child placed in their home will receive a notification before the end of the year informing them of the new caregiver support level (1-7) that will go into effect Jan. 1, 2024, if the level has dropped.

Starting Jan. 1, 2024, DCYF will pay all caregivers including CPA caregivers directly. CPA caregivers will need to start claiming invoices beginning January 2024.
