Where do I submit Project Review Requests?

Federal agencies, private and public landowners, project managers/planners, and consultants are asked to submit all new project review requests and supporting documentation electronically to jaxregs @ Please do not submit to other email addresses or individual staff as this may result in processing delays due to planned and unplanned absences or other work related issues. Electronic submissions need not be submitted in hard copy unless requested by our staff.

NOTE: Emails with attachments are limited to a maximum size of 20 megabytes (20MB). If you have attachments that exceed this threshold, note same on your email submission and then send those attachments on CD or DVD via mail to the Jacksonville address listed below. If you chose or need to submit via multiple emails please use same subject line for each email and note numerical sequence in the subject line such as 1 of 3, 2 of 3, etc.

Looking for Your Project's Review Status?

Please allow a minimum of 30-days from date of project submission to our office before inquiring as to your project's review status. This allows time for your project submission to be received, complete intake processing, and staff assignment and initial review. Requests are placed in different process tracks (technical assistance, informal consultations or formal consultations) and generally handled on a first-in, first-out basis within those tracks. However, these timelines assume all information required for us to complete our review/consultation is provided and no additional information is requested. Such requests for additional information, clarification or incomplete submissions can result in the temporary suspension of review timelines. If you have not heard from us AFTER 30-days, for quickest response submit a status request via e-mail to jaxregs @
