NEPA Compliance

National Environmental Policy Act or NEPA review is triggered when a project requires federal approval or funding or when a federal agency sponsors a project. Like CEQA, the NEPA process can range from simple to complex depending on the site and project scale. BPG services include preparation of NEPA Categorical Exclusions (CEs),  Environmental Assessments (EAs) and technical studies required to support NEPA findings.  BPG has specific expertise preparing NEPA documents under 24 CRF Part 58 for affordable housing and community improvement projects receiving federal funding from Housing and Urban Development (HUD); Title XVI for water recycling projects led by the Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for projects funded through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund.
