  • Pass a federal fingerprint clearance ($23.00 cost paid by provider) and prevent the children from being with anyone with a criminal background while they are in care.
  • Attend an orientation and sign a provider agreement – If care is going to be provided in your home, the parent must also sign the provider agreement.

A relative caregiver must NOT:

  • Live in the same home as the children.
  • Be the parent (biological, adoptive, or foster) of any of the children being funded.
