Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children

The Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children (ICPC) assures the safety of children being placed across state lines, both those going out of state, as well as those coming into the state, and provides out-of-state placement and supervision for dependent children.

One of the major purposes of the ICPC is to protect children from placement in dangerous or inadequate situations across state lines.

ICPC uses a general email address for all incoming and outgoing requests for processing. This includes all new referrals, completed home studies, progress reports and 100B forms. The email address to use for all inquiries is: ICPC.DFCS@mdcps.ms.gov.
