The primary purpose of this bulletin is to provide current information to all of our grantees on your initial contact person at the Federal Transit Administrationís (FTA) Region 10 for all National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) reviews. As bulletin 07-49 assigned you a specific grant contact they will be your contact person and will help answer general NEPA questions.

When you are starting work on a specific project, please request through your grant contact and Deborah Ensor, Administrative Program Assistant, for your project to be assigned to a NEPA reviewer.
