Governor Wolf Announces Fee Waivers for Volunteers Seeking Background Checks


 

Harrisburg, PA - Governor Tom Wolf announced today that fees for child abuse clearances and criminal background checks required by the Child Protective Services Law will be waived for volunteers working with children. Additionally, the Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) will be reducing the cost of both the child abuse and criminal history record checks from $10 to $8 for all other applicants. These changes will take effect July 25, 2015.

Beginning July 1, 2015, volunteers are required to obtain background checks, including the Child Abuse History Clearance, issued by the DHS, and the Criminal History Record Check, issued by the PSP. 

Persons seeking employment for work with children and others required under the law will still be assessed fees for the clearances, but at a reduced cost of $8 each.  FBI clearances are also required for all employees and for volunteers who have not been a continuous resident of the commonwealth for the last 10 years, but because these are administered by the federal government current costs will continue to apply.

A comprehensive list of persons required to get clearances is as follows:

·         Child care service employees;

·         Foster parents and adult household members;

·         Prospective adoptive parents and adult household members;

·         Individuals 14 year of age or older applying for a paid position as an employee responsible for the welfare of a child or having direct contact with children;

·         Any individual seeking or provide child-care services under contract with a child-care facility or program;

More information about clearances required under the Child Protective Services Law can be found at www.keepkidssafe.pa.gov.  Individuals seeking clearances can go directly to www.compass.state.pa.us/cwis to create an individual account and apply for their child abuse clearance electronically.
