Supervision, service provision, and ongoing contact with a child in an Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children (ICPC) placement is essential in order to ensure that the child receives all necessary services and is in the best possible placement. When a child from another state is placed in a Kentucky home through ICPC, the SSW meets face-to-face with the child in their placement at least once every calendar month. This enables the SSW to assess progress toward case plan goals and objectives and to assess adjustment to the placement. For Kentucky children that are placed in another state, the Kentucky SSW has face-to-face contact with the child in his/her placement setting annually. The information in the following procedures applies to approved ICPC placements. If another state denies placement, the case is closed and services will not be offered to the family. The Cabinet for Health and Family Services (Cabinet/CHFS) will not place children in homes that have not been approved by the receiving state.
