DMCPS is not issuing statements of support for new group homes, effective May 12, 2021. For more information, see the DMCPS Memo, Suspension of DMCPS Statements of Support for New Group Homes.

You must be licensed as a Group Home (GH) for placement of children under a Child in Need of Protection and Services (CHIPS) order before requesting a contract with DMCPS.

The registration and contract process is open: any newly licensed GH, or existing GH not currently under contract, may submit a registration form to DMCPS at any time during the calendar year. For GHs currently under contract, a registration form must be submitted annually and is due no later than September 29, 2023. A link to the registration form and the Scope of Service for the current contract year and the next contract year is below.

It is important that you submit a completed registration form to avoid delaying the registration and contracting process. The information in your registration form will also be used by the Contracted Case Management Agencies and the Placement Referral Unit to make appropriate placement referrals for children/youth. Following a satisfactory paper review, a site visit may be scheduled by the DMCPS Contract Administrator.

Please note: Although a contract may be granted, DMCPS does not guarantee the placement of children within any group home. All placements are determined based on the specific needs of the child.
