Environmental Assessment, Joplin School District Educational Facilities, Joplin, Jasper County, Missouri (May 2012)

Main Content

The Joplin School District has requested Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funding under the Public Assistance Grant Program. This draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment (PEA) documents the results of a study of the proposed action’s potential environmental impacts and has been prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969; the President’s Council on Environmental Quality regulations implementing NEPA (Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations {CFR}, Part 1500-1508); and the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regulations implementing NEPA (44 CFR Part 10). The regulations require the preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA) that includes an evaluation of alternative means of addressing the problem and a discussion of the potential environmental impacts of a proposed Federal action. An 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 44 CFR Part 10. This section of the Federal Code requires that FEMA take environmental considerations into account when authorizing funding or approving actions. This draft PEA was conducted in accordance with both CEQ and FEMA regulations for implementing NEPA.
