  • State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR). In New York State, most projects or activities proposed by a state agency or unit of local government (e.g., infrastructure expansion), and all discretionary approvals (e.g., subdivision approval) from a state agency or unit of local government, require an environmental impact assessment as prescribed by SEQR.
  • SEQR may require a Full Environmental Assessment Form (FEAF), or a Short Environmental Assessment Form (Short EAF) for a proposed action impacting the character or quality of important historic, archaeological, architectural or aesthetic resources.
