Late DHS Payments Hamper Foster, Adoption Agencies

Groups representing and running foster and adoption agencies are waiting for significant payments from the Department of Human Services, and though some are confident the money eventually will come, the question is when.

These concerns have been exacerbated by the rollout of the Michigan Statewide Automated Child Welfare Information System last year. And on Thursday, the Senate Appropriations Human Services Subcommittee held a hearing to look at the situation in which DHS officials insisted the problems would be resolved in a couple months.
