Foster Care Rate for Youth Living in a SILP Outside California

AB 12 Question of the Week

Q: If a non-minor dependent (NMD) living in a Supervised Independent Living Placement (SILP) resides out of state,  do they receive the newly updated California basic rate of $838/month or do they receive the basic rate that is paid by the state in which they reside?  My understanding is that all NMDs receive the California rate no matter where they live.  Please clarify.

 

A: Yes, you are correct. All non-minor dependents (NMDs) in a Supervised Independent Living Placement (SILP) receive the basic foster care rate for a youth ages 15-20 in California, which is $838 per month.  This includes NMDs who are residing in a SILP outside of California.
