Child Welfare Licensing Quick Links:
On June 29, 2009 Governor Jim Doyle signed the 2009-2011 state budget into law. One of the items passed in the budget included a State regulated provider rate and authorization to freeze rates. This action freezes all group home rates, residential care center rates, as well as the administrative rates for private child placing agencies, through 2010 at the 2009 levels.
The provider rate regulation requires the State to establish (1) the per client rate that a group home or residential care center may charge for its services and (2) the per client administrative rate that a child welfare agency may charge for the administrative portion of its treatment foster care services beginning January 1, 2011.
An Advisory committee has been formed includes stakeholders from the following: group homes, residential care center, private child placing agencies, state government, county government and WAFCA (Wisconsin Association of Family and Children's Agencies).
