Division of Licensing and Background Checks

The Division of Licensing and Background Checks is comprised of the Office of Licensing and the Office of Background Processing. We license Foster Homes, Child Care Facilities, Human Services Programs, and Health Facilities, utilizing rules established with community support, to protect the dependent and vulnerable citizens of Utah.
