Health Impact Assessment
What is a Health Impact Assessment (HIA)
An HIA is defined as a combination of procedures, methods and tools that systematically judges the potential, and sometimes unintended, effects of a proposed program, project, plan, or policy on the health of a population and the distribution of those effects within the population.
NEPA Draft EIS
NEPA Draft Environmental Impact Statement
NEPA stands for National Environmental Policy Act. NEPA requires federal officials to consider environmental values alongside the technical and economic considerations that are inherent factors in federal decision making.
SEPA Draft EIS
SEPA Draft Environmental Impact Statement
SEPA requires agencies to take environmental factors into consideration before taking action on proposed projects. It’s important to emphasize that the environmental review process is not a decision, permit, or a yes or no on the project.
