With increased pressure to streamline the NEPA process, and subsequently compliance with other federal laws such as Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), tribal consultation and engagement has become a key topic in this national conversation. As part of this webinar, panelists will share their perspectives on tribal consultation and engagement in this changing policy environment. Speakers will discuss the requirements of tribal consultation under Section 106 and NEPA and best practices for tribal engagement. Tips and tools will be shared with participants regarding how to effectively facilitate tribal consultation and engagement and how it can help further the goals of streamlining. Please join us for this important topic!
