Coordination of NEPA and Section 106 supports the interdisciplinary consideration of effects to the human environment, including historic properties; avoids duplication of effort to ensure timely reviews; enhances public and stakeholder involvement leading to outcomes aligned with public values; and promotes transparency and accountability in federal decision making. Building on the basic concepts and vocabulary presented in the Basics of NEPA and Section 106 Integration, this course builds skills in identifying and taking advantage of coordination opportunities when a federal project, program, or activity is subject to concurrent NEPA and Section 106 reviews. Through case examples and challenge questions, learners will apply the concepts in scenarios where an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or Environmental Assessment (EA) is prepared, or where a Categorical Exclusion (CE or CatEx) may apply.
