CDPH ICR Information Now Available

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) will continue with the standardization of Indirect Cost Rates (ICR) for contracts, allocations, and grants with LHDs for FY 2019-20. LHDs will be requested to submit documentation used to calculate its ICR as a percentage of personnel services costs and a percentage of total allowable direct costs. CDPH held a training webinar this week for LHDs and has proposed the following timeline for the FY 2019-20 ICR Program:

  • December 5, 2018 – LHDs to submit ICR documentation to CDPH
  • November-December 2018 – CDPH to review submittals and issue results letters to LHDs with their specific rate
  • February 15, 2019 – CDPH Programs to be notified of approved LHD ICR
  • July 1, 2019 – CDPH to apply approved ICR to FY 2019-20 agreements.

For more information or questions about the 2019-20 ICR, LHDs are encouraged to contact Rebecca Lee at (916) 552-8381 or email the LHD ICR mailbox at
