    Are You a Veteran?

    The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs has great diversity of licenses and regulation within its oversight.

    Our LARA Veteran Liaisons may be able to help you navigate through the process and programs within our Department. This is an initiative offered to veterans to receive assistance getting to the appropriate area under LARA’s authority by speaking to a LARA employee who is also a veteran.

    Upon contacting the Department, you can request to speak with a LARA Veteran Liaison.  Based on up-front information provided, you will be directed to an appropriate liaison.
