I plan on seeking multiple licenses from the MRA, do I have to pay the $6,000 application fee for each license?

Applicants only need to pay the $6,000 application fee for each separate prequalification application submitted to MRA for review. A separate prequalification application is a different applicant with a separate tax identification number. Applicants will not need to pay the $6,000 application fee for each separate Facility License Application (Step 2) submitted. However, applicants will need to pay the regulatory assessment for each license that is issued.

Please see the following illustrative examples below for further clarity:

Example 1—One entity seeking multiple licenses (e.g., a grower and processor license)

The entity needs to complete one prequalification application and pay the $6,000 application fee. The entity needs to complete a grower Facility License Application (Step 2) and a processor Facility License Application (Step 2). When the main applicant receives notification, they will need to pay a regulatory assessment for the grower license AND a regulatory assessment for the processor license.

Example 2—Separate entities seeking to co-locate (e.g., a prospective grower, processor, and provisioning center)

Entity A, Entity B, and Entity C plan to co-locate as a grower, processor and provisioning center respectively. Each entity will need to pay a non-refundable application fee of $6,000 and, after MRA notification, will need to pay a regulatory assessment. So, Entity A will need to pay $6,000 with its prequalification application; Entity B will need to pay $6,000 with its separate prequalification application; and Entity C will need to pay $6,000 with its separate prequalification application. A regulatory assessment will also need to be paid for each the grower, processor, and provisioning center license.
