What is a Health Impact Assessment (HIA)

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 Final EIS
SEPA 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.
