Thank you for your interest in becoming an In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Provider.
State law requires that IHSS Providers complete all the enrollment steps and pass a criminal background check before they are eligible to be paid by the IHSS Program.

- Make sure the person you will be providing care for, known as your "Recipient", has an eligible IHSS case BEFORE you start working for them. Otherwise, you will NOT be paid by the IHSS Program.
- If you are providing care for a MINOR IHSS Recipient, do NOT begin the enrollment process until you are approved by the Recipient's IHSS Social Worker to become the IHSS Provider.
- You must carefully review the COVID-19 Vaccine Notice | Aviso de Vacunación de COVID-19 and the COVID-19 Vaccination Exemption Form for an important update from CDSS that requires certain IHSS and Waiver Personal Care Services (WPCS) Providers to be fully vaccinated and boosted with the COVID-19 vaccine by March 1, 2022, or within 15 days of becoming eligible to receive the booster dose. Do NOT submit your COVID-19 Vaccination Exemption Form / Vaccination Record Card to the Public Authority.
