What services do we provide?

In our ongoing effort to provide better customer service and more convenience for residents, we have made several of our licenses available on online.

This roll-out includes: Renewals of Class A, B, C, and D food licenses.

• Renewals for Child Care Centers and Tattoo Parlors.
• Dog licenses and vending machine licenses. Renewals of these types of licenses will also be available online.

Please Note:
• New food establishments or establishments under new ownership will still have to come to HHS offices at the Martin Luther King Jr. City Hall Annex in person to receive their initial license.
• Mobile food vendors (food trucks) must return to HHS annually for inspections and renewals of their licenses.

What does building a Culture of Health mean to Jersey City Department of Health and Human Services as an organization?

“Licensing is vital to the Division of Environmental Health because it would be impossible to regulate the 3,000 establishments that we do without the data that’s collected during the licensing process.”
