The Interagency Rates Committee (IRC) is comprised of representatives from the Department of Budget and Management, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Administration/Mental Hygiene Administration, Department of Human Resources/Social Services Administration, Department of Juvenile Services, Governor's Office for Children and the Maryland State Department of Education.The IRC is charged with developing and operating a rate process for residential child care and child placement agency programs that is fair, equitable and predictable.The IRC has developed and adopted a rate methodology that can be applied equitably across a broad range of residential child care and child placement agency programs based on peer program comparisons.To assist new and existing providers with the rate application process, we have attached the forms and instructions needed to complete the rate process. All forms must be completed and signed prior to submitting the forms to the Interagency Rates Structure Section at the Maryland State Department of Education.Announcements and Meeting InformationFY 2019 Annual Provider MeetingSessions of the FY 2019 Annual Provider Meeting were held on November 13 & 14, 2017.
