Increase in Fingerprint Fees

The fee for fingerprinting will increase in 2019, which will affect child care facility employees who need to have the required background check conducted.

The Nevada Department of Public Safety (DPS) reported last week that the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) portion of the fingerprint fees will increase to $13.25. The state’s portion will not increase. Total cost for Fingerprint Based Submissions will now be $36.75 and the total cost for Volunteers will be $29.25. 

The State of Nevada Child Care Licensing (CCL) unit conducts background investigations on all owners, directors, employees, and volunteers of licensed child care facilities.
