The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) announced that it has been selected to participate in an interstate program that will reduce the amount of time children spend in foster care and help them find permanent, loving homes with families living in other states. The National Electronic Interstate Compact Enterprise (NEICE) project uses a web-based system to improve efficiency in the administration of the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC), the state-by-state agreement that governs foster care and adoption placements when a child is placed in the care of a family in another state.
