The Abbreviated Environmental Reviews and Authorizations list includes certain categorical exclusions under NEPA as well as statutory or regulatory authorization processes whereby a project meeting the applicable criteria for that authorization type receives an expedited authorization decision (e.g., within one year) or a simplified process (e.g., United States Army Corps of Engineers General Permits).
