FD-031-Treatment of Income Intended for Foster Care
This memorandum serves to clarify the treatment of income intended for the care of a foster child when determining eligibility for participation in the CSFP. A foster child is a child who is living with a household but who remains the legal responsibility of the State. Such a child is considered a household of one. Because a foster child is considered a household of one, the income of a foster child is considered separately from the income of other members of the foster child’s place of residence.
