What is a Federal Project?

Except as required by law, “federal project” should be defined as the portions/phases of a project that receive significant federal funding.

Applicability of all federal requirements, (e.g., NEPA, Buy America, Historic Preservation) should be tied to a single, uniform definition of “federal project”. Only those projects that receive significant federal funding should be subject to these federal requirements. It should be clarified that granting a federal permit does not make a project a “federal project”.
