North Dakota Foster Care Reimbursement
In April of 2022, the Children and Family Services (CFS) Division implemented the new CFS Licensing Unit, based on legislative intent to redesign program and service delivery specific to licensing statewide providers. This redesign effort transformed how North Dakota licenses, trains and works to recruit, support and retain foster care providers and serve children and families involved in the child welfare system.
The CFS Licensing Unit is responsible for creating and updating statewide policy and procedures with an overall goal to implement standardized procedures, which offer consistency and efficiencies for licensing specialists, providers and case managers. This training highlighted the following:
- Overview of the CFS Licensing Unit operations
- Licensing Roles and Responsibilities
- Level of Care decisions specific to children in foster care, and
- Overview of the ND Recruitment and Retention State Plan
