Boarding House Model Standards

As required by HB 216 from the 2009 legislative session, HHSC has developed and approved the final version of model standards for the operation of boarding home facilities.

A county or municipality may require the issuance of a permit to operate a boarding home facility within its jurisdiction. Counties and municipalities may adopt the model standards developed by HHSC for the operation of a boarding home, and may require a boarding home holding a permit issued by the county or municipality to comply with the adopted model standards.
