Assessing the Context of Permanency and Reunification in the Foster Care System: The New Jersey Natural Parent Support Program . 2.6 Funding


The original NPSP contract was from April 1999 through December 1999. The annualized funding for the cost reimbursement contract is approximately $94,000. The funding comes from the Governor's Foster Care and Permanency Initiative, funded entirely with state money. NPSP does not expect to receive any increase in funding when the contract is renewed for 2001. All sources we spoke to indicated this was not due to lack of performance by the program but a decision to keep the program status quo at this time.
