Bring the completed application along with your plan drawings and other supporting documentation to DCRA at 1100 4th St SW for processing. These additional documents

You have 30 days from the day you create the application to update any information (except the property address). To update or reprint your application, you will need the property address, and the Online Intake Tracking (FJ) number. The tracking number is generated after you complete the application.
