Long term foster care providers are required to be licensed in the state in which they are located to provide foster care services and are required to meet the needs of UC by providing quality care in a community setting.

UC who may qualify for placement in long-term foster care include UC between the ages of 0-17 years of age, sibling groups, pregnant/parenting teens and/or UC who are especially vulnerable or with other needs.

All entities, funded under this FOA, must also comply with the Flores v.
