Main Content

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). 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. The President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) has developed a series of regulations for implementing the NEPA.  These regulations are included in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Parts 1500–1508. 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 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)
