CEQ Publishes Guidance on Programmatic NEPA Reviews
The Council on Environmental Quality has published its final guidance on programmatic National Environmental Policy Act reviews. This guidance provides clarification on when and how Federal agencies should use programmatic
environmental analyses in accordance with NEPA, 42 U.S.C. 4332, and the
CEQ Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of NEPA, 40 CFR
parts 1500-1508. Guidance on programmatic NEPA reviews has been
requested by the agencies and attention on programmatic NEPA reviews has
increased as agencies undertake more broad landscape-scale analyses for
proposals that affect the resources they manage.
