CCAP Enrollment and Staffing Shortage

footer-logo.png Due to an increase in CCAP enrollment and a temporary staffing shortage, IAFC is currently processing one week behind schedule. We understand the impact this has on the families and providers we serve and are working diligently to process all client eligibility documents as quickly and efficiently as possible. Thank you for your patience as we continue to work overtime to decrease our backlog. Please also see our IDHS Information page for further information and updates.
