Who We Are

The Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC) establishes uniform legal and administrative procedures governing the interstate placement of children and is statutory law in all fifty-two member jurisdictions and a binding contract between member jurisdictions. Established in 1974 the Association of Administrators of the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (AAICPC) was given the authority to carry out the rules and terms of the Compact more effectively.

Our Purpose

AAICPC consists of members from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The AAICPC obtains its Secretariat Services as an affiliate of the American Public Human Services Association (APHSA). The Secretariat to AAICPC provides ongoing administrative, legal and technical assistance to individual states that administer the Compact. The Secretariat provides resources and information to resolve problems of mutual concern and formulating standard policies, practices, and goals. The AAICPC Secretariat does not handle questions about individual cases. Direct all questions about individual cases should refer to the public human service agency or private child placing agency responsible. However, direct all requests for general ICPC information to AAICPCNationalOffice@aphsa.org.
