Step 2. Complete the Correct Environmental Assessment Form
Type I Actions
Complete a Full Environmental Assessment Form (Full EAF) for any Type 1 action. The project sponsor / applicant completes Part 1 of the form and submits it to an involved agency together with any other applications that are required. When the lead agency is established (See step 3), that agency is responsible for completing Part 2 of the EAF, and as needed, Part 3. The requirement for a full EAF may be waived if a draft EIS is prepared and submitted with the application.
If your action is a Type I Action, proceed to Step 3.
Unlisted Actions do not always require preparation of a full EAF.
An agency may require a full EAF if the short EAF will not provide sufficient information,or it may waive the requirement for an EAF if a draft E.I.S. is prepared and submitted with the application. If the option to prepare a full EAF is not exercised, a short Environmental Assessment Form must be completed for the action. (617.20 Appendix C)
Unlisted Actions range from very minor activities to actions falling just below Type I thresholds.
Coordinated Review is not required for Unlisted Actions - Proceed to Step 4
