Pre-Application Consultation - Federal Consistency Review

Meet with the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) to get assistance with Federal Consistency Review for your project.

CZM strongly encourages pre-application consultation for actions or activities that are subject to federal consistency review, which includes 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.

Consultation Process

CZM policy and technical staff can provide assistance on questions regarding jurisdiction, activities subject to review, contents of the consistency certification and material necessary to commence review, review schedule, and project design and/or operation. These meetings help ensure that the review procedures are well understood and the review process can be conducted in a timely and efficient manner.

If you have questions or need additional information after reviewing the material from Overview and Index - CZM Federal Consistency Review Program, please call the Project Review Coordinator at (617) 626-1050, or email CZM at czm@state.ma.us. Please specify in the email that you have a federal consistency question.

Also see Apply for Federal Consistency Review for a “how to” guide on the application process.
