*Volunteers who have NOT lived in PA for the last 10 years must also complete. There is a fee of $22.50 which will be reimbursed by RCCNH:https://www.dhs.pa.gov/KeepKidsSafe/Clearances/Pages/FBI-Fingerprinting.aspx

As long as you indicate that the clearances are for volunteering purposes, there is no charge for the clearances.

Submit to RCCNH via email or print copies with your volunteer application.  

Clearance renewal is due every 5 years but does not require another volunteer application.
