Social & community

Find resources to guide your Social and community effects analysis for EAs and EISs.

Read the Community Engagement Plan (PDF 2.1MB) to learn how to engage with partners, stakeholders, tribes and communities throughout project delivery.

If a pre-NEPA planning study was done, reference what was heard by the community. Use the community feedback in developing your project-specific engagement efforts and design.

Only do a Social & community effects analysis for Environmental Assessment and Environmental Impact Statement (EA/EIS) level projects.

Define the study area

Consider how the project could have impacts on social and community resources to create a study area for the Social & Community Effects Analysis, especially:

  • Noise
  • Air Quality
  • Visual Impacts
  • Transportation
  • Parks and Recreation
  • Public Utilities
  • Cultural Resources
  • Hazardous Materials
