As a part of the implementation of the Unified Federal Review process required by Section 429 of the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act of 2013, a FEMA-led interagency steering group has developed draft guidance document (copy attached) to assist applicants in navigating through environmental and historic preservation (EHP) compliance requirements. The guidance outlines types of information applicants should submit to Federal agencies to assist in expediting the EHP review and also provides an overview of the EHP review process for applicants applying for Federal assistance and permits. Those interested in providing input on the draft guidance by November 28, 2014, are encouraged to visit www.fema.gov/environmental-historic-preservation/draft-environmental-and-historic-preservation-guidance-federal
