A TPA is needed for an event:
- where 75 or more people gather indoors; or
- where 200 or more people gather outdoors (however, events using publicly accessible open space for the promotion of products or services do not qualify for a TPA.
Applicants for a TPA pay a fee of $250. If the event is less than 10 business days away, applicants must pay an additional $100 per day. Filings submitted three business days or less prior to the event cannot be guaranteed timely processing. The fee is paid online through the DOB NOW system by credit card or e-check.
To learn more about how to submit a TPA filing in DOB NOW please read this helpful step-by-step guide (PDF), or view the video tutorials for TPAs listed here.
