Environmental and Cultural Resource Compliance

 
Welcome to the Environmental and Cultural Resource Compliance section of Farm Service Agency's (FSA) website. This website contains information regarding how FSA is ensuring that the implementation of its programs meet all applicable environmental and cultural resource review requirements.

 
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), FSA must consider the environmental and cultural resources effects of each of its actions. FSA must also consider the requirements of numerous other environmental laws, regulations, and executive orders when implementing its programs. FSA's internal environmental/cultural resource regulations classify the Agency's actions into various levels of environmental review (i.e., Categorical Exclusions, Environmental Assessments, or Environmental Impact Statements). FSA incorporates all of its environmental compliance activities, including NHPA and the Endangered Species Act under its NEPA review process.

 
FSA administers its programs through a network of State and county offices. Each FSA State Office has a State Environmental Coordinator (SEC) who provides oversight and direction in the implementation of FSA's environmental review responsibilities at the state and county levels. For specific questions related to a program and its associated environmental benefits in a particular state, we encourage you to contact that state's SEC.
