Child Welfare Services (CWS): Foster Care Rate Reform Proposal


The County Welfare Directors Association (CWDA) appreciates the efforts of the Administration and California Department of Social Services (COSS) to put forth a comprehensive foster care rate reform proposal. CWDA supports the overarching goals of the proposal to support family-based care, particularly kinship care, and to establish a new structure driven by the child’s needs rather than by their placement setting. CWDA is also supportive of proposed new state investments associated with the rate proposal.
