What is required to apply for a group care facility license?

(1) You, the person responsible for the license, must submit a completed application which is available from the DCYF LD.
(2) You must submit a completed background authorization form for your executive director, agency staff, including those not directly working with children, consultants, volunteers, and anyone paid by the facility per chapter 110-04 WAC.
(3) You must ensure that all paid agency staff and any other paid adults working at your facility, including those not directly working with children, complete a FBI fingerprint check and a child abuse and neglect history check of every state in which the individual has lived in the preceding five years prior to conducting the background check.
(4) You must ensure that agency volunteers who provide direct care complete a FBI fingerprint check and a child abuse and neglect history check of every state in which the individual has lived in the preceding five years prior to conducting the background check.
(5) You must ensure that agency volunteers who do not provide direct care and have lived outside of Washington state during any portion of the previous three years complete a FBI fingerprint check.
(6) You must ensure all staff, volunteers, or subcontractors meet the requirements in chapter 110-04 WAC. An individual is not authorized to work in the facility until DCYF issues a background check clearance authorization for the individual.
