Federal Consistency Review
CZM implements the federal consistency review process in Massachusetts. Federal consistency review is required for most projects that: 1) are in or can reasonably be expected to affect a use or resource of the Massachusetts coastal zone, and/or 2) require federal licenses or permits, receive certain federal funds, are a direct action of a federal agency, or are part of outer continental shelf plans for exploration, development, and production.
See Apply for Federal Consistency Review for contact information, application requirements, review procedures, and timetables.

To receive CZ-Mail, CZM's monthly electronic newsletter announcing available products and services, projects of note, available grants and other opportunities, pending legislation, and events, send a blank email (please be sure that the email is completely blank, with no signature line) to email@example.com.
