SB 693 - This act increases the foster care reimbursement and adoption subsidy rates over a period of three years. Currently, Sections 210.536 and 453.073, RSMo, require the Division of Family Services to pay for the cost of foster care and to grant adoption subsidies. Beginning in fiscal year 2004, new language requires the incremental increase of the foster care reimbursement rate and the adoption subsidy rate over three years. Both rates shall be increased until they meet or exceed rates established by the United States Department of Agriculture.
This act is similar to SB 410 (2001).
