Adult foster care programs

Licensing rules for adult foster care programs

In some cases, Minnesota Statutes may have superseded or modified licensing rules. Licensing rules should be read in conjunction with Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 245A. (Retrieve an entire chapter of statutes.) Each program has license requirements unique to the individual program. Some require building, fire code and zoning approval before a license is issued.

Application forms listed are in the portable document format (PDF). See the DHS PDF page for more information.
