New York State Foster Care Rate Info

Foster Care boarding home rates differ significantly in New York’s 58 social services districts as each local district (LDSS) or county is allowed to set its own rates. The state only determines the maximum amounts it will reimburse to the local districts; there is no minimum! The Coalition advocates that New York State OCFS establish consistent statewide minimum board rates for all local districts, commensurate with actual costs, and offers the following information to assist New York State foster care advocates and families in advocating for local changes that achieve increased consistency and fairness in statewide rates.
