Delaware COUNTY KINSHIP CARE PROGRAM

   
 

  

The Kinship Permanency Incentive program is designed to promote a permanent commitment by the kinship caregiver by becoming a guardian or custodian over a minor child who would otherwise be unsafe or at risk of harm if the child remained in their own home. 

The Kinship Permanency Incentive program provides time-limited incentive payments to families caring for the kin.

Eligibility requirement for the KPI program include: 

  • Court must have awarded “legal custody” or guardianship of the child on or after 7/1/05 to the kinship caregiver.  Any temporary court orders do not apply.

  • The gross income of the caregiver's family may not exceed 300 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. (These income guidelines are very high.)

  • Family must have obtained an approved home study.

Eligible families will receive an initial payment of $525 per child and $300 per child every six months for a maximum of six payments.
