This Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) provides a review of the potential environmental impacts associated with grant funds issued by the Homeland Security Grant Program (HSGP).  The HSGP is to assist state, local, tribal, and nongovernmental agencies in developing interoperable communications within the P25 VHF trunked system build-out. As a condition of the HSGP, HSGP grantees must comply with all relevant federal legislation; including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), therefore this project requires a site-specific EA. An EA includes an evaluation of alternative means of addressing the purpose and need for federal action and a discussion of the potential environmental consequences of the proposed federal action. The EA provides the evidence and analysis to determine whether the proposed federal action will have a significant adverse effect on the human environment. An EA related to a FEMA program must be prepared according to the requirements of the Stafford Act and 44 CFR Part 10. This section of the Federal Code requires that the FEMA take environmental considerations into account when authorizing funding or approving actions. This EA was conducted in accordance with both CEQ and FEMA regulations for NEPA. FEMA will use the findings in this EA to determine whether to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI).
