The City of Boise issues specific types of business and individual licenses to maintain the health, safety and general welfare of the public. If you engage in any of the activities listed below, you are required to maintain a valid City of Boise license. All applicants applying for the first time must complete and meet all license requirements prior to the license being issued.
The city now allows you to apply for a license online. Note some of these licenses require a background check and finger printing for a complete application. These background checks must be conducted in person at City Hall. All licenses require a fee that is due when applications are submitted.
Please note: In an effort to provide more flexibility for our local child care providers outside of business hours, the City of Boise offers extended availability for fingerprinting appointments. Appointments are available for child care workers and facility owners on Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. After hours fingerprinting is by appointment only.
Fingerprinting appointments for all license types are available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
