PACT (Parents and Children Together)

The PACT program provides additional financial assistance for the caretaking of children with special needs above and beyond those of typical children in foster care. An hourly rate is paid to foster parents who facilitate medical or behavioral interventions to address the needs of their children. PACT requests should be made to your child's social worker (who will forward the request to the appropriate supervisor), and they are approved on a case-by-case basis.
