Child advocates: Ohio state foster plan illegal, inadequate

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Advocates for Ohio children cared for by relative adults say a state plan to address funding disparities for those children is illegal and inadequate. At issue are people who take custody of children they’re related to but who aren't licensed foster parents. A long-time gap exists in Ohio between payments to non-licensed relatives and to licensed foster care parents, who typically receive much higher amounts. Ohio has been under pressure from child advocates to follow a 2017 court ruling ordering equality in such payments. Lawyers representing so called kinship caregivers are challenging the state's recently announced plan.
