Welcome to NEPA
Welcome to the Department of Defense Environmental Planning website. This is the new home of National Environmental Policy Act policy information for DoD.
NEPA requires the Federal Government to make environmentally informed decisions when implementing major Federal actions and to integrate environmental values into their decision making processes by considering the environmental impacts of their proposed actions and reasonable alternatives to those actions.
Council on Environmental Quality released guidance on implementing National Environmental policy Act after budget lapse shutdown. The guidance addresses concerns that resource agencies may not have been available to analyze and the public may not have been able to comment issues during the budget lapse.
