Final Public Notice
The City of Helena has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance
(PA) Program funding through Alabama Emergency Management (AEM) as a sub-grantee.
Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), federal actions must be reviewed and evaluated
for feasible alternatives and for social, economic, historic, environmental, legal, and safety
considerations. Under Executive Order (EO) 11988 and EO 11990, FEMA is required to consider
alternatives, and to provide a public notice of any proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or
wetlands. EO 12898 also requires FEMA to provide the opportunity for public participation in the
planning process and to consider potential impacts to minority and low-income populations. This notice
may also fulfill requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).
Funding for the proposed project will be conditional upon compliance with all applicable federal, tribal,
state, and local laws, regulations, floodplain standards, permit requirements and conditions.
