After you apply

After you submit your application, OMMP staff will:

  • ​Verify the information contained listed on your application.
  • Conduct a criminal background check on the grower, if applicable.
​If your application is com​plete:

Your card will be mailed to you.

If your applica​tion is NOT complete:

OMMP staff will send you an "Incomplete Letter" to let you know what needs to be submitted to complete your application. You will have 14 days from the date of the letter to get the missing application materials to OMMP. If the missing application materials are not submitted within the 14 days, your application may be rejected.

Please do not call to check your status prior to 30 days from the date we receive your application. The processing of applications takes time, and the same staff who review your application also answer the phones. The more calls we receive, the slower we process applications.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
