AFFILIATES

Our Affiliate Organizations

APHSA’s nine affiliate organizations are unincorporated entities, consisting of individuals engaged in or concerned with policy and practice associated with major fields of public human service endeavors. This may include specific assistance and service programs, e.g., the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly food stamps), child welfare, or general support functions for human services, e.g., information systems, training and development. You may link directly to the web site for each affiliate from the drop-down menu on the APHSA home page. Additionally, APHSA serves as the secretariat for the Association of Administrators of the Interstate Compact on Adoption and Medical Assistance, which is a nonprofit corporation established in 1986 to facilitate the administration of the compact.

Besides being an affiliate of APHSA, AAICPC obtains its secretariat services through APHSA.

The Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC) is not only statutory law in all 52 jurisdictions, it is also a binding contract between all parties. The ICPC establishes uniform legal and administrative procedures governing the interstate placement of children. ICPC is the best means we have to ensure protection and services to children who are placed across state lines. The Secretariat provides ongoing administrative, legal, and technical assistance to individual states that administer the compact. The Secretariat also provides administrative, legal, and technical assistance to the network of ICPC member states for the purpose of resolving problems of mutual concern, and formulating common policies, practices, and goals.
