Boarding Home Facility - Wyoming Licensure Information


The definition of a Boarding Home is a dwelling or rooming house operated by any person, firm or corporation engaged in the business of operating a home for the purpose of letting rooms for rental, and providing meals and personal daily living care, but not habilitative or nursing care, for persons not related to the owner.  Boarding home does not include a lodging facility or apartment in which only room and board is provided.

A valid state license is required prior to providing care to any client/patient/resident.

Following are the requirements and procedures through which your agency may be approved to be licensed as a provider of Boarding Home Facility services.

Click below for a license application for State licensure.  Please fill out the application in its entirety and submit to our office, along with the required fee.  After reviewing the regulations, please contact one of our engineers at (307) 777-7123 to discuss the building requirements and any construction review approval process. Once we have approved these items, a provisional license will be issued, and you will be able to start providing services to clients/patients/residents.

When you have clients/patients/residents for which you are providing services, your agency must request, in writing, that a health survey be conducted.  An unannounced survey will be provided by state surveyors as soon as scheduling permits.  When the initial survey has been completed, and the facility is found to be in compliance with the regulations, a permanent license will be issued. 

A license permits an applicant to operate a healthcare facility in Wyoming.  It does not enroll or certify a provider or supplier of healthcare services to participate in federal certification programs (Medicare/Medicaid).
