Thanks for your question. If you are a foster parent here you should be getting paid by an agency to raise them. Most foster parents are licensed or certified by the state. You should receive payment from the agency that is employing you as a foster parent here. If I am missing something here please let me know. This is sort of a confusing situation. You would be eligible for subsidies if you legally adopted them. These would be payable through the agency that allows you to adopt them. you can get subsidies for foster children since you are getting paid to care for them. In most situations they are eligible for medicaid here too..
Here is reference to adoption subsidies.
