  • Description:
    "The PEA was initiated in August 2009 to streamline the NOAA grants and special permitting processes in the NOAA Fisheries' Southeast Region (SER). The SER has received submittals from states and other entities for 20 types of grants and 22 special permits, all were determined to have no significant impact. All those actions have been determined to be categorically excluded actions per NAO 216-6, with the exception of three construction projects that required environmental assessments. Proposed actions have been grouped in the PEA into three categories for analytical purposes: Category A: Special permits and grants that have no potential for environmental impacts; Category B: Special permits and grants that have little to no potential for environmental effects; and Category C: Special permits and grants that have the potential for significant environmental impacts. Proposed actions in Category A would be analyzed and tracked under the PEA using a new reporting form. Proposed actions in Category B and Category C would undergo tracking and case-bycase analysis, and would not be approved without further NEPA analysis as appropriate. Using the process summarized above, the PEA will substantially reduce the time and effort spent on preparing redundant documentation for actions in Category A, without potential for significant environmental impacts. This proposed action will also optimize use of scarce agency resources for more effective analysis of future actions with the potential for significant environmental effects (Categories B and C)"--Cover letter; Portfolio comprised of three related PDF documents digitized and organized by: NOAA Office of Program Planning and Integration (PPI) National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) staff.
