The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 requires that the effects on the environment be evaluated prior to the approval of any major federal actions (construction) or federal permitting. NEPA typically includes completion of Environmental Assessments (EAs), Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) and Categorical Exclusion (CE) documentation for projects receiving federal funding. It may also include site screening for a variety of cultural, environmental, and socio-economic issues.
