Licensing Portal System
Licensing Portal System
Welcome to the Licensing Portal System (LPS) help page. LPS is the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development's (MDARD) online licensing system which gives users the opportunity to apply for, maintain, and track the status of licenses and permits.
On this page, you will find an overview of the LPS system, procedures to assist with the application process, payment options, and links to assist you with the license/permit application process. LPS features a dashboard for easy viewing of all open applications, notifications from MDARD, and payment information connected to the user's organization.
MiLogin is the State of Michigan’s application for online access to many state services and systems across multiple departments, including MDARD's Licensing Portal System. MiLogin allows users to access many state services and systems online, across multiple departments, using a single user ID and password. If you have not yet created a MiLogin account, you will need to do so to access LPS. For increased security, MiLogin requires a multifactor authentication before you can access LPS or other state systems.

NOTE: If you currently access Water Usage Reporting (WUR), or any other State of Michigan online services and applications, you should already have a MiLogin account. Please use your user ID and password from those systems to log into the MiLogin portal, instead of creating a new account.

LPS accepts credit card payments only (Visa, MasterCard, Discover).
The State of Michigan utilizes a Centralized Electronic Payment and Authorization System (CEPAS) to process online credit card transactions. The charge will show up on your account statement as "Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Credit Card". The payment for a new license application will be a part of your application process.
