Wisconsin Subsidized Guardianship

Subsidized Guardianship is a permanent placement option for children in out-of-home care that transfers legal authority to a relative or like-kin guardian without terminating parental rights. It allows children to reach permanency when adoption and reunification with their parents are not the best options. Guardians assume legal authority to consent to the child’s school activities, health care, and everyday events, while allowing for family dynamics and relationships to remain intact.

The following forms are used to determine continued eligibility and subsidy amendment requests.  You will be filling out these forms with your county or agency contact.
