Public Authority - What is The Registry?


The Public Authority Registry is a resource of background-checked, qualified Care Providers maintained by the Public Authority.  Registry Providers are matched with IHSS Consumers according to their specific needs, thereby allowing Consumers to remain living in their own homes with the assistance of their Provider.

What are the Criteria for Acceptance to the Registry?
    • Registry Application: All sections of the application must be completed.
    • Training and Enrollment: All Registry applicants are required to attend and complete a mandatory Training and Enrollment Class.
    • Face-to-Face Interview: All Registry applicants must schedule a face-to-face interview with the Registry and Training Specialist.
    • References: Each Registry applicant must submit at least two (2) work references and one (1) personal reference to the Registry.
    • Identification and Employment Eligibility: Copies of the following will be required for the face-to-face interview: a valid driver's license/picture ID,  proof of citizenship or other legal document verifying eligibility to work in the United States, Social Security card, and proof of auto insurance.
    • Background Checks: Each Registry applicant must provide written permission to conduct a DMV check, local, criminal and Health and Human Services Agency background check.

    IHSS Consumers are responsible for interviewing and hiring their IHSS Care Provider. Consumers in need of assistance in the hiring process may call the Public Authority for help at (209)754-6544
