Join the Registry

Join the Public Authority Registry caregiver team:

  1. Call Public Authority at (866) 351-7722 to request a Registry Workshop appointment.
    • Registry Workshop appointments take place via Zoom
  2. Complete and submit a Registry application packet.
    • You will receive these documents and instructions via e-mail
    • Documents must be submitted by the deadline given in the e-mail
  3. Attend a Registry workshop and pass a basic test on the following topics which are covered during the workshop:
    • Valuable in-home caregiving skills
    • Information regarding the Public Authority
    • Information regarding the IHSS Program
  4. Pass a criminal background check (Live Scan) through the California Department of Justice (DOJ)
    • Applicants who are NOT already enrolled as an active IHSS provider are required to complete the enrollment process (an appointment is needed and will be scheduled by a Registry representative after meeting all DOJ requirements)
  5. After successfully completing the above steps, you will receive a welcome letter from the Registry. The Public Authority Registry will now begin referring your name out to IHSS consumers (IHSS recipients) who are looking to hire caregivers.
