Kinship Care

This program offers assistance for households where the child or children are being cared for by a relative. There are three basic eligibility requirements for Kinship Care:

  • the basic needs of the child can be better met with the relative than with the parent;
  • the placement is in the best interests of the child; and
  • the child currently or would potentially meet the requirements for court jurisdiction as being in need of protection or services if the child were to remain with his or her parent(s).
