Special License Pending Application Search

Coronavirus/Covid-19 Cancellations

If your organization has been approved for a Special License and are you cancelling the event due to the Covid-19 virus situation, please email the details of your event cancellation to: mlccspeciallicenses@michigan.gov.  A cancelled Special License will not count toward your organization’s 12 license annual limit.  No refunds will be issued for cancelled Special License events.

  • You must email the cancellation notification to the MLCC prior to the Special License event date(s) being cancelled.
  • If you cancel an event and notify the MLCC after the event date(s), you must submit written verification from the local law enforcement agency verifying the event was not held.
  • Include your organization name, the date(s) of the event(s) to be cancelled, and the license number on the Special License(s).

If you would like to amend a Special License event date of an event that you are postponing due to the Covid-19 situation, you must submit written approval from the local law enforcement agency approving the amended event date along with a written request to amend the Special License date.  A request to amend a Special License event date can only be accepted if the request and local law enforcement approval is submitted prior to the original approved Special License event date.

Due to the increased volume of Special License applications at this time, including many applications that are received by the MLCC fewer than 10 days in advance of the proposed events, we are not able to enter all applications into our system when we receive them.  We process applications out of the date order that we received them to ensure that applicants receive their Special Licenses in time for their events.  We apologize that this causes delays for applicants that have submitted applications well in advance of their events and we appreciate your patience as we try to process applications in a timely manner.  Below is a list of applications that have been received by the MLCC, but may not have been reviewed yet.

  • Organization names are listed in alphabetical order with the first date of event(s) and date received by MLCC.
  • All applications listed below have been received and are waiting in line to be setup & reviewed by staff.
  • Once the application has been entered into the system, it can be tracked via the Application Status check link when searching by the organization name: https://customers.mlcc.michigan.gov/SoM_ApplicationStatusCheck
  • MLCC Special License staff will review your application before the first event date and if any additional documents are needed both contacts on the application form will be notified via email.

Please note that if you see your application on the list below or on the Application Status Check website, we have received your application and are working on it along with the many other pending applications we have received.  Because of the continued high volume of applications at this time, we ask that if you see your application listed below or on the Application Status Check, that you please do not call only to verify the status of the application as those calls delay the processing of applications for all organizations.
