WHAT IT'S USED FOR

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) was signed into law by President Richard Nixon on January 1, 1970. The purpose of the law is “to promote the general welfare under which man and nature could co-exist in productive harmony.” The law largely stemmed from growing concerns about decades of environmental neglect. At its core, the law requires federal agencies to act as responsible stewards of the nation’s natural resources by considering environmental impacts of their actions.

NEPACheck reports are commonly used when projects require NEPA compliance, especially those that involve the Federal Communications Commissions, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Transportation, and the Department of Defense. While these are the most common agencies to require NEPA compliance, other government agencies have similar requirements.
