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

If you are a Vermont resident who is considering placing your child in another state for the purpose of residential treatment or adoption or you are a resident of another state considering placing a child in Vermont for those purposes, please contact the ICPC Deputy Compact Administrator.
