Child Welfare Licensing Quick Links:
The 2009/2011 budged passed June 29, 2009, included a State regulated provider rate and authorization to freeze rates. This action froze 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.
Beginning January 1, 2011, the provider rate regulation requires the State to establish each year (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.
An Advisory committee was formed that includes stakeholders from the following: group homes, residential care center, private child placing agencies, state government, county government and Wisconsin Association of Family and Children's Agencies (WAFCA) .
