Special message for military personnel, spouses, and veterans
The State of Texas recognizes the contributions of our active duty military service members, their spouses, and veterans. The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) in collaboration with the Office of the Governor, Texas Workforce Commission, Texas Veterans Commission, and Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, is spreading the word to military personnel, their spouses, and veterans about licenses they may be eligible for and that may assist them in their search for work.
Military personnel or veterans may have met some licensing requirements as a result of their military service or other training, knowledge, and experience. Military spouses of current, active duty military service members may also have met some licensing requirements related to this status.
Military personnel, their spouses, and veterans who are interested in obtaining an asbestos, mold, or lead license and would like additional information regarding requirements may contact the Environmental and Sanitation Licensing Group (ESLG) at 512-834-6600 ext 2174.
In addition to assistance with obtaining licensure, ESLG staff can assist deployed military service members who are currently licensed in Texas with license renewal requirements.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to military service members, veterans, and their families for their dedicated service to the United States of America and to the State of Texas.

The Texas Online Payment System is currently unavailable to make asbestos, mold, and lead notification payments. Payments may be made in the form of a check or money order and sent to the payment address provided on the notification invoice. This does not impact the payment of licensing fees.
