Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), FEMA is providing grant funding to non-Federal fire departments and State and local governments through its Fire Station Construction Grant Program (SCG) for the construction, renovation, or modification of fire stations. The County of Hawaii is a recipient of SCG grant funding and is seeking to construct a new facility, the proposed Makalei Fire Station, in Makalei, North Kona, Island of Hawaii. As recipients of SCG funding, grantees must comply with Federal requirements as a condition of the grant award. This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared in accordance with NEPA, the President’s Council on Environmental Quality regulations to implement NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations Parts 1500-1508), and FEMA’s regulations implementing NEPA (44 CFR Part 10).
