Assisted Living Licensure
This page provides information about the new assisted living licensure that will go into effect on August 1, 2021. Part of assisted living licensure includes the proposed rules on assisted living conducted through the state’s rulemaking procedure. If you have questions or need information about current home care licensing requirements or home care and assisted living services, please visit the Home Care and Assisted Living site.
The Health Regulation Division of the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is developing new rules for the assisted living laws, chapter 144G. A notice was published in the State Register on August 12, 2019, requesting public comment on the rulemaking process. MDH encourages public input.
MDH has convened five Assisted Living Licensure Rules Advisory Committee working meetings since October 2019.
