Environmental & Historic Preservation Review

EHP Review

Federal environmental and historic preservation laws and Executive Orders provide the basis and direction for the implementation of federal environmental and historic preservation review requirements for FEMA-funded projects. These laws and executive orders are aimed at protecting our nation's water, air, coastal, wildlife, land, agricultural, historical and cultural resources, as well as minimizing potential adverse effects to children, low-income and minority populations. Failure to comply with these laws could result in project delays and denial of funding. FEMA through the Environmental and Historic Preservation Program engages in a review process to ensure that FEMA funded activities comply with these laws.
