How much do you get paid to be a foster parent?


While states do not pay foster parents an income or salary, they do provide financial support intended for the child's care in the form of subsidies, reimbursements or direct payments. The amount of the payment varies by state and the age of the child.

In addition to age, states may vary amounts based on the type of foster care provided and a child's medical needs. For example, Maryland's standard monthly payment is $835 for children under 11 and $850 for children 12 and older. Intermediate foster home caregivers receive monthly payments of $950 for children 11 and under and $965 for children 12 and over.
