Out of County Living Arrangement Program

In 2008, the Office of Third Party Billing assumed responsibility for billing for the Out-of-County Living Arrangement program (OCLA) The intent of the OCLA program is to determine which students are placed in Baltimore County through a social services placement, primarily foster care, and bill the home jurisdiction for the cost of educating the student. The state of Maryland also contributes toward the cost of educating these students. Baltimore County has more foster care homes than any other jurisdiction in the state.
