In order to comply with the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) 50-36-1, the Center for Environmental Health requires that a Verification of Residency for Public Benefits Application be completed by all new applicants for Food Service Permits, Swimming Pool Permits, Tourist Accommodation Permits, Waste Removal and Disposal Permits, Trailer Park Permits, Body Art Establishment Permits, and Body Artist Licenses. The completed application must be notarized, and a copy of the supporting secure and verifiable document must be attached.
Acceptable secure and verifiable documents are detailed in the lists below:

Please keep in mind that we cannot issue a permit or license until a fully completed Verification of Residency for Public Benefits Application has been received by our office. Once we have accepted the application, the applicant will not be required to resubmit this document for any future permits or licenses.
We thank you for your cooperation in helping our department meet this legal requirement. If you have any questions regarding Verification of Residency, please call the Center for Environmental Health at 770-435-7815.
