Placement and Residential Licensing

Overview

The Placement and Residential Licensing Unit (PRLU) is responsible for enforcing the Child Welfare Agency Licensing Act 1041 of 1997. PRLU inspects and monitors Residential, Emergency Residential, Psychiatric Residential Treatment, Independent Living Facilities, and Child Placement Agencies that place foster children. PRLU makes recommendations to the Child Welfare Agency Review Board for licensure of agencies and alternative methods of compliance with standards, investigates complaints of violations of minimum licensing standards, and recommends adverse actions against agencies found to be in violation of the standards.
