Low Income License Waiver Program for Hair Braiders
The Department of Business & Professional Regulations has a low income license waiver program. This program helps individuals who do not have the money to pay for their license. The waiver will pay for your license fee, however, you will still be responsible for paying for the additional fees. For example, your application fees etc. For a list of the remaining fees due at time of application for licensure please click here.
If you have the desire without much money, you are still able to work in your chosen field and get your state license.
Under House Bill 615, which went into effect July 1, 2017, the Department now has the ability to waive the initial licensing fee for low-income individuals who apply to the Department for a state professional license. To qualify for this fee waiver, the applicant must demonstrate that his or her annual household income, before taxes, is at or below 130 percent of the federal poverty guidelines prescribed for the family’s household size by the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
For those who need financial assistance to get their license, I would highly suggest that you check this program out. “No one should ever be denied an education or to work in their chosen field due to the lack of money”.
