Q:

How much do foster carers get paid?

A:

Foster care providers do not receive a salary or income, but do receive payments intended for the foster child's care. The amount is determined by the state and based mainly upon the child's age. States can provide the money in the form of subsidies, direct payments and reimbursements.

For example, as of 2014, Wisconsin provides a monthly amount of $375 for children under 4, $410 for children from 5 to 11, $466.00 for children 12 to 14 and $487 for children 15 and over. By contrast, foster parents in Rhode Island receive an average of $729.39 per month to provide for the foster child.
