How much do I have to pay to become a foster parent?

I want to become a foster parent, and I was looking up how to, and I know I have to pay for my fingerprints and CPR and whatnot. Does anybody who is a foster parent know how much it'll cost me in total? I'm a caregiver for my grandmother and I just got hired at McDonald's so I know I have financial means to support us, and I just turned 21 so I meet the age requirement. I want to make a difference in a child's life.

    If you go through your county, all training, finger printing, home inspections and background checks are covered at no cost to you. The only thing you would really have to pay for is medical appointments (physicals) if you don't have insurance and any changes to your home to meet their requirements.
