In 2007, Children's Rights, University of Maryland School of Social Work and the National Foster Parent Association released a report detailing how much payment foster parents in each state should be receiving. In 2008, Missouri raised the amount paid to foster parents based on lobbying done by groups using the report. However, the amount still falls short of the suggested rates.
