Implementation of AB52 Sample Letters – Request for Formal Notification and Request for Consultation

Sample Letters for Tribes for the Implementation of Assembly Bill (AB) 52 (Gatto, 2014)

(Chapter 532, California Statutes of 2014)

Request for Formal Notification and Request for Consultation

After AB 52’s July 1, 2015 effective date, public agencies will be required to consult with California Native American tribes that are on the Native American Heritage Commission’s (NAHC) consultation list that are traditionally and culturally affiliated with the geographic area of a proposed project that is subject to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), if the tribes request formal notification and subsequently consultation. To assist tribes in this process, the NAHC is providing the sample letters below:

 

  • Sample letter from a California Indian tribe to a lead agency requesting formal notification of proposed CEQA projects  in the tribe’s area of traditional and cultural affiliation, pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21080.3.1 subd. (d). Request for Formal Notification of Proposed CEQA Projects

 

  • Sample letter from a California Indian tribe to a lead agency requesting consultation, pursuant Public Resources Code Section 21080.3.1, subds. (b), (d) and (e). Request-for-Formal-Tribal-Consultation
