To apply for a self-certification, exemption, general permit, or individual/conceptual permit online, please use the DEP Business Portal.
There is a $100 discount to apply using the DEP business portal for an individual/conceptual permit, and self-certification of single-family dock exemptions is free. If you choose not to apply through the DEP business portal, you may submit the forms below along with any supplemental information either by email or regular mail.
If you want to submit by email, please use the Electronic Submission Instructions. Please note, the $100 discount for individual/conceptual permit applications does not apply if you do not submit your application through the DEP business portal. If your project is regulated by a delegated local program (Broward or Hillsborough counties), please contact your delegated local program.
If you want to submit by paper mail, please send the forms to the local DEP district office. If you are mailing large files, please include a CD with an electronic copy of the application.
Please note that as of Dec. 22, 2020, the Business Portal applications and the paper forms allow you to apply for both ERP and State 404 Program authorization at the same time, if applicable.
