Disaster Recovery Library: Environmental Review/Requirements

Passed in 1970, the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) of 1969 requires that all activities receiving federal funds be reviewed for their impact on the environment. All disaster recovery and mitigation activities trigger some level of environmental review. In addition to environmental review requirements, grantees must incorporate environmentally sound practices into their programs such as employing green building standards, preserving historic properties, requiring flood insurance, and elevating flood-prone structures.
