Planning

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) ensures that the BLM considers the impact of an action on the quality of the human environment before decisions are made and the action is taken. NEPA-related documents are required to concentrate on significant issues. The NEPA process is intended to help public officials make better decisions based on an understanding of environmental consequences, and take actions that protect, restore, and enhance the quality of the human environment.

As of October 1, 2015, the BLM now hosts all of our current and ongoing planning documents on the new ePlanning site. This site allows you to search for projects by geographic location, project resource type, year, and other project-specific fields.
