Interstate Compact on Placement of Children

The Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC) facilitates the placement, across state lines, of children and youth who meet certain criteria.

As a member of the compact, Vermont follows ICPC regulations and procedures.

When The Compact Applies

The compact applies when a child or youth:

  • Is under the jurisdiction of a juvenile court by way of a child protection proceeding.
  • Has a delinquency proceeding with custody going to someone other than the child’s legal parent.
  • Is being placed for the purpose of adoption.
  • Is being placed by the parents for residential mental health and behavioral treatment.
