The electronic version of the JARPA is a fill-in form with help screens for each question. You must have an Internet connection to use the help screens. Non-internet users can contact the ORIA Information Center, who can provide you with an application packet and answer any questions.
Is your project for a mooring buoy? You can access a streamlined JARPA form for mooring buoys by clicking here.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife accepts applications for Hydraulic Project Approvals (HPAs) through their new online Aquatic Protection Permitting System (APPS). Using APPS, you may submit and pay for your HPA application, view the status of your submitted applications, and receive HPAs issued to you. A link to APPS is available at: http://wdfw.wa.gov/licensing/hpa/.
You may use APPS to apply for a Hydraulic Project Approval only. JARPA is still used to apply for permits from other agencies.
APPS can be used to produce a draft JARPA that includes information submitted in the online APPS application. You can then complete the JARPA outside of APPS and submit it to other permitting agencies that require a JARPA form.
