MassBroadband 123 Environmental Assessment

The Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) grant from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration requires that an Environmental Assessment be prepared to meet the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act.  The National Environmental Policy Act requires that federal agencies examine any reasonable alternative approaches to an action and consider the potential impacts of an action prior to making a final decision to proceed.  The use of the federal funding being provided through the National Telecommunications and Information Administration is a federal action which is subject to the Act.
