NEPA Resources

The National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) is a procedural statute requiring Federal agencies to assess the environmental effects of their proposed actions prior to making RFSI subaward decisions.

The resources located on this page will assist RFSI applicants and states with understanding NEPA, federal environmental regulations, and other laws/statutes that may apply to the RFSI program.
