State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) Act Compliance
In New York State, most projects or activities proposed by a New York State agency or a unit of local government, and projects which require discretionary approval from a NYS agency or a unit of local government, are subject to the NYS Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA). These include projects sponsored by COMIDA.
If the proposed project requires discretionary permit, license or other type of approval by the state or local municipality, you must include a copy of all SEQRA documents related to the project including an Environmental Assessment Form (EAF), Final Determination, and Local Municipality issued Negative Declaration.
