Image of a field full of flowers and treesThe National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) establishes policy and requirements for Federal agencies with respect to protecting the environment. Its goal is to prevent or eliminate damage to the environment and biosphere and stimulate the health and welfare of man. The NIH NEPA program requires that the potential environmental impacts of agency actions be considered before a decision is made to proceed with an action.
