The Michigan Foster Care Portal (MFCP) is a one stop shop to begin the licensing process. This will support an increase in the timeliness of licensure. As prospective foster parents’ complete steps in the MFCP, the portal tracks their progress and guides them to the next steps in the licensing process.

The portal will have contact information for agencies, as well as FAQs to assist you as you go through the process.

When creating your account, please remember to add your email and phone number. This will be helpful for contacted agencies and if you need to reset your password.
