Date Published: March 2013



This handbook provides advice on implementing provisions added to the Section 106 regulations in 1999 that address both “coordination” of the Section 106 and National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) reviews and the “substitution” of the NEPA reviews for the Section 106 process. This handbook also provides advice on implementing Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations that require agencies to “integrate the NEPA process with other planning at the earliest possible time to insure that planning and decisions reflect environmental values, to avoid delays in the process, and to head off potential conflicts.
